I am not sure if i have followed the entire conversation thread here, so
apologize in advance if this doesn't make sense. 

I get the sense that you want todo a point-to-point or multicast session 
instantiated via Mosaic. Well, i did something a while ago that supports 
point-to-point audio/video sessions using some of the Mbone tools instantiated 
via application/x-mmphone.

You may take a peek at Mmphone at

To use it, you will need to
and add an entry to your .mailcap that looks like
	application/x-mmphone; %s

And this could easily be upgraded to support multicast sessions as well, just
haven't had the time.
