        Hi, I like the draft, particularly because of its simplicity,
which is another pro of speex compared with other codecs. Some

<p>        - Reading section 3, I understand that frames cannot be
fragmented across different RTP packets, which seems quite
reasonable. I think a explicit statement on this would make the draft
even more clear.

        - I believe speex frames are little enough to fit in a packet
smaller than the usual path MTU. However, when RTP packets convey
multiple frames, one could use a high enough ptime value so that the
RTP packet size would exceed the path MTU. Normally, RTP payload
formats should avoid fragmentation or define its own fragmentation
mechanism (see RFC 2736). I think in this case it would be good to add
the constraint that the value of ptime should be such that the RTP
packet size does not exceed the MTU.

        - Section 7 indicates that RFC 1889 is updated by a work in
progress, but does not indicate that RFC 2327 is also updated by a
work in progress (draft-ietf-mmusic-sdp-new). Also, references number
2 and 4 are not referenced in the draft.

        - Regarding the MIME registration section, it lacks published
specification. I think it should reference the speex documentation as
well as the draft. Also, no contact person and change controller is
provided, and the "security considerations" parameter refers to RFC

        I attach a patch for some typos, I believe. Bye.
