That's a case that I hadn't though of - there's no discussion of it in
the JEP, and the samples don't show it. 

So an admin sets a subscription to "pending", then a user sends a
subscription request, and the server then marks it as "subscribed". 

We need to get this documented in the JEP, because it's not obvious (at
least to me) from context.
