I still see "1.1.  Applicability Statement" in -v07 of

RFC 8639 Section 2.7 "Subscription State Change Notifications" starts with "In addition to sending event records to receivers, a publisher MUST also send subscription state change notifications when events related to subscription management have occurred... The complete set of subscription state change notifications is described in the following subsections."   So the only optional ones are related to replay (if replay is supported) and suspension (if a publisher is capable of that.)

And the dumb transport is excellent.    All I was asking for is the differences in behavior between A.1 and A.2 to be noted somewhere.  The two are unlikely to be equivalent in functionality, however a reader new to the space could perceive equivalence.

Perhaps something like second paragraph in Section A.2 like:

Note that if the receiver requires:
* being fed metadata about the intended contents of the Event Stream,
* that changes to the publisher's configuration of Stream have occurred, or
* the publisher has temporarily suspended event transmission
then this application specific module should include functionality similar to that supported by the RFC-8639 Section 2.7 Subscription State Change Notifications.
