btw, I think what Esben is after is making calls without registering. This 
is standard SIP stuff, but not really used in practical deployments (but 
useful for testing -> no need for any servers to do pure client-to-client 
testing). Sofia-sip can do it, but telepathy-sofiasip not at least yet 
(but as Mikhail already pointed out, patches are welcome).

There's actually real P2P-SIP as well (i.e. peer to peer that could be 
deployed for real world use), as well, but that's quite a different thing 
and certainly not covered by base SIP specs:

And as it happens, one P2PSIP prototype has been done on top of sofia-sip:

But yeah, the specs are still work in progress.
