[JDEV] Two jabber:iq:roster questions

I'm trying to improve my roster support by storing the actual names in
addition to the jids. I have two questions:
(1) When adding a buddy, do I have to first send a <presence> element to
subscribe, then a jabber:iq:roster "set" to add a name? I can't specify
the real name in the <presence> element, and conversely, I don't think
simply changing the 'subscription' mode in a roster element will
actually cause a subscription attempt to occur, right? This seems sort
(2) When sending a roster "set", can I just skip the fields I don't want
to change? Ideally I'd just like to send:
<item jid="snej at jabber.org"
but I'm afraid that omitting the 'group' and 'subscription' elements
might clear their values.
