Can anyone tell me why the Sip-Method Values in the dictionary with OpenSER:

### Sip-Method Values ###
VALUE Sip-Method         Undefined      0
VALUE Sip-Method         Invite         1
VALUE Sip-Method         Cancel         2
VALUE Sip-Method         Ack            4
VALUE Sip-Method         Bye            8
VALUE Sip-Method         Info           16
VALUE Sip-Method         Options        32
VALUE Sip-Method         Update         64
VALUE Sip-Method         Register       128
VALUE Sip-Method         Message        256
VALUE Sip-Method         Subscribe      512
VALUE Sip-Method         Notify         1024
VALUE Sip-Method         Prack          2048
VALUE Sip-Method         Refer          4096
VALUE Sip-Method         Other          8192

Dont match the values in draft-schulzrinne-sipping-radius-accounting-00.txt:

             0  INVITE
             1  BYE
             2  REGISTER
             3  CANCEL
             4  OPTIONS
             5  ACK
             6  SUBSCRIBE
             7  NOTIFY

Not only does OpenSER have more values, but the integers dont match the same 
values in the spec....
