Well, I test my SIP enviroments usually with Twinkle which allows
fetching registrations, a feature that I consider very usseful for
testing purposes.
But not, it's not a "real" requeriment.

Anyway, I already know that RFC3261 (and friends) are written by
people coming from other galaxy in which NAT doesn't exist, there is
IPv6 and devices use S/MIME to secure communications... XD
But the feature aked here (fetching registrations) is, IMHO, an useful feature.

Thanks for all.
