[Standards] Contradiction in XEP-277 (Microblogging over XMPP).

There's a "fairly" contradictory text for the open access model in the 
extension,

Paragraph 4.2 point 3 cites:
<< The "pubsub#access_model" SHOULD be set to "open" to allow any user 
to comment to a post. Other values are suitable too according to the 
user's settings. >>

While the description for the open access model in XEP-60 cites:
<< Any entity may subscribe to the node (i.e., without the necessity for 
subscription approval) and any entity may retrieve items from the node 
(i.e., without being subscribed); this SHOULD be the default access 
model for generic pubsub services. >>

Which means that everyone can subscribe and retrieve items from the 
node, but _not_ post to it as 4.2.3 in XEP-277 says.

Regards.
