Sorry for coming late folks, looks like you got almost everything sorted out :-)

And on reflection, this gets tangled up with authorization--the "pending" NOTIFY is more to say the authorization has not yet been determined. If the subscriber is known to be authorized, then rather than a "pending" NOTIFY it might just send a normal NOTIFY with some default presence state, then send the real presence when it gets it. (The subscriber's user experience might be a to initially see the entity as "closed" then quickly transition to "open”.

You could still send an empty NOTIFY with subscription state “active”, to indicate that the it has been allowed by the policy, but there is no presence state to show at this moment. How to interpret that is of course implementation specific.
