[JDEV] Subscribing to ICQ user presence

I'm having trouble subscribing to a user's presence thru ICQ.  I send a 
presence packet like so:

<presence to="12345678 at icq.jabber.org" type="subscribe" />

what I get back is roughly like this:

<iq type="set">
   <query xmlns="jabber:iq:roster">
       <item jid="12345678 at icq.jabber.org" subscription="none" 
ask="subscribe" />

According to the JPG, this means that the subscription has been 
requested but not yet granted. 

This is on whatever server version is on jabber.org.

Am I missing something here?  Does the ICQ client need some sort of 
configuring to allow this (I'm testing with the micq Linux client)?  Or 
does this plain not work?
