  Section 3, last line : "The priority of blocked (jid+deny) items in 
the privacy list SHOULD be such that they come first in the privacy list."
Does this mean that servers should try to reorder order of entries in 
the privacy list ? What is a privacy list aware client explictly changed 
the order ?

Sounds kind of ambigous to me, does this need to be specified ?
Or is it the intention that server finds the first 'hole' in the order 
of entries and fills that slot with the new block entry ?
