[Standards] XEP-0060: Affiliations vs. access models

And another question... (for Ralph? :) )

There are some cases which are not clear regarding the permission model.

These two things contradict for example:

Table 1: "Affiliations and their Privileges" states that entities with
affiliation "none" may not retrieve items.

Table 6: "Node Access Models" states that for "open" nodes (which it
says SHOULD be the default), "any entity may retrieve items from the
node".

Would it be fair to say that for an "open" node, an unaffiliated
entity would have the same permissions as a "member" would on a more
closed node?

Regards,
Matthew
