??? Not sure I understand what you are talking about here, are you saying 
voip-presence can be done using JEP-115 cleanly and inline with the spirit 
of it?

Urm yes he did, infact he specifically said that the voip-presence cannot be 
guessed from your IM presence, thus the need to have the voip-presence 
separately specified using pubsub, I quote:

"No: when I'm DnD for IM, then certainly I'm DnD for VoIP (also known as
"away"). But when I'm in a voip call, I'm certainly still able to read
IM messages: this is a presence information, and it can't be guessed
from the IM presence."

I havent dropped it you have obviously just misunderstood what I have said 
throughout, I have and always said pubsub was for solving the voip-presence 
(Task 3) problem which is still the only way I can see it being solved
