Interesting use of the word "pedantic".

   replace ("/^To:(.*);tag=[^;]*(;.*)/To:\1\2/");

in an onreply_route (you may have to fix the regexp, haven't tried).
Dunno if this is a good idea, though. An UA that actually is pedantic
may throw away the responses. The most likely outcome is that you won't
have any ring tones. Confuses people no end.

You may want to protect this by an

  if (search ("Asterisk")) { }

block and an angry comment.

who has seen cell phones with a better SIP stack then Asterisk.
