Hi Peter,


I have a couple of questions about the implications of the new "presence 
authorization" concept, and a couple of editorial nits. Otherwise, I 
think this is ready for IETF last call. It might make sense to go ahead 
with the last call, and address these with any last call comments--but 
I'd like to have an initial round of conversation about the presence 
authorization first.

- in 5.2.3, whose "authorization" is canceled? If the SIP contact has a 
reciprocal subscription back to the xmpp contact’s presence, is that 
impacted by this unsubscribe action? Or is the SIP user expected to 
remove the authorization for the xmpp user to see her presence info?

- in 5.3.1, I _think_ the flow creates both an authorization and a 
notification dialog. If the SIP user unsubscribes, and resubscribes 
(that is, tears down the notification dialog and creates a new one), is 
there any difference in the flow due to the fact the XMPP server has 
authorization state for the SIP user? (Would F29 and F30 still happen?)


Nits:

- 1, 5th paragraph: s/specfic/specific/

- 5.2.2, first paragraph, last sentence: I suspect "whenever" should be 
"... sufficiently in advance of when..."
