> Although proper procedures for submitting this report to the LC may have been followed, and (I assume) the appropriate copyright statement is included, I think this report is not quite ready to be released in its present form.  I agree with Jeff's comments that the report could benefit by additional copy editing.  Beyond that, I would suggest few additional changes before the report is published:
> 
> The Abstract should contain a more concise statement of the report's purpose.  The abstract indicates that no new technologies are needed for interworking between "IMS" and the Internet.  Since IMS is later defined as a framework to describe the implementation of telco services based on the Internet Protocol, it's not clear (to me at least) what is meant by interworking between IMS and the Internet.

> The report assumes that the reader is familiar with telecommunications concepts and terminology.  Is the report written mainly for telecom professionals?  If not, perhaps more explanation of some of the terminology and concepts would be helpful.  For example, telecom acronyms such as SIP are used throughout the report, without fully explaining what they mean (other than a simple definition of the acronym).   
> 
> IMS seems to be associated with the "3rd Generation Partnership Project."  Some explanation of this should be provided.  In North America, telco services based on the Internet Protocol are usually referred to as Voice Over IP (VoIP) or Internet Telephony.  Does IMS, or IP Multimedia System, mean the same thing, only to a European and/or Asian audience?  Is the report geared mainly to a European and/or Asian audience?   The report should state who the intended audience is.
