3920 section 6.2 states that :
When a client receives a subscription request from another entity, it
MUST either approve the request by sending a presence stanza of type
"subscribed" or refuse the request by sending a presence stanza of type
If the client so requires, is there some way to defer this subscription
request for later ? The server will re-deliver the subscription at a
later point of time if it is deferred.
As things stand - a user can find out the available/unavailable status
of another user simply by sending a subscription request and seeing if
he gets a response within reasonable time cos of the MUST respond clause.
