Yes. But think about an implentation where only Voicedata is exchanged.
This is more easy to implement and gives more throughput. Any Form of
Controllchannels will drop Bandwith 5-10%.

Yes Sir!

No Sir!

Too much CPU wasted. Let us retransmit the Packets or drop them.

No. Due to the Nature of V.3x more than one Bit is transmitted in a coding
/decoding scheme (4-8Bits at a single Time) so if there is going something wrong
the other 3-7Bits are invalid most of the Time. If we have a V.34 Channel its
better to transmit all Data twice.

That is to much tought about the modempart. If we are going to transmit
things over TCP/IP we will loose whole Packets and not only bits.
We could design diffrend Comunication Layers but make this Sense?
