Again. The common domain makes only sense if it provides actual
functionality and resource management at the domain level. The IMS slot
management CANNOT happen at the common domain level simply because IMS
is strictly per device. So your "common" domain is just a shim layer
which pretends to be common and requires warts at the side to do the IMS
management at the device level.

Let's see what you came up with this time :)

I seriously hope so...
