Current supported branches are 16, 18, 19, and master. A JIRA issue per
change is desired, along with submitting to Gerrit.

As long as it is optional then it is fine.

The chan_sip module is deprecated and will be removed. Except for bug
fixes, at this point I'm not personally willing to accept new features or
changes like this because of the potential impact on the current state of
chan_sip and high risk of breaking something unintentionally. Things like
this should strictly be done with PJSIP instead.
