> I think we should have one "Dialplan SIP address" per account. Now we could enable sub-accounts for an account, but still expose them to the Dial string. What's the use case for dialing only one device registred to an account that can't be solved with multiple accounts?

That looks like replicating what GRUU does, so why do it then? :-)

> We do need a conference call and whiteboard to discuss how to integrate outbound and gruu into this and handle various registration methods - including GIN (but not yet Tonic).

I haven't looked deeply into GIN (without tonic) but how do you think 
outbound affects this? If the "Dialplan SIP Address" is the AoR then 
when you Dial(SIP/oej at edvina.net;gr90e39898908) Asterisk should route it 
to all devices with that instance ID.

rAren't reg-ids associated with a sip.instance? So the way I see it we have:

- Different sip.instance contacts with may have multiple undelying contacts
- Different address families

> In addition we have the Path.

But that will affect routing, not choosing to what addresses to route to.

> So one device can have up to at least six contacts registred, maybe more.

Many more! ;-)

> For GIN, we need to accept a username-free contact and the new "replace username with phone number" concept when dialling out to the registred user. How this works with SIP outbound is something I haven't looked into. That's one RFC I did
