The problem is simply, that it is almost impossible to build all features 
known from PSTN PBXs just with a SIP proxy like SER. Because in theory 
signaling and audio is separated in the proxy scenario.
In a centralized approach like with * it is lot easier to copy PBX features 
because they are based on the same design idea.

So if you need PSTN/PBX features your probably better stay with *, although 
everybody is welcome on hard path setting up such features in a 
de-centralized environment.

Just my 2 cents
