As in the other part of this thread, I agree it goes in -phonebcp

Yes, I would think so too

Well, I think that's complicated.

First of all, the minimum sequence is emergencyRouting and send the call.
UPDATE location later if you need to.

Question to James et. al. on a reference: Do you ever think something like
the notion of emergencyRouting/Dispatch would get encoded in the reference?
I hope not.

Then you could ask for both, but you need to do that in separate requests so
that the response to the Routing request comes in as soon as it's ready.

And of course if you get both, and you have them before you send the call
(meaning they come in quickly), then you want to use and send Dispatch and
discard Routing unless there is an error.
