RE: [Geopriv] Location in SIP and "retransmission-allowed"

Okay, so tell me, when 4119 talks about LI or LO in the context of
retransmission allowed, what LI was it talking about?

Again, I can deal with a request to normatively change 4119 to remove the LI
part. I don't agree with such a change, but it makes sense to me.

It doesn't make sense to say that 4119 doesn't apply, or the words don't
mean what I think they mean.

The LO has a ruleset that specifies what the recipient can do with the
location. To me, that means LI, not just LO. As with anything else, if you
sufficiently obscure the location (like just take the country code), then
the rulemaker may not care, so your example may be moot.

To supply a counter-example, can the car service who drives Christina
Aguilera around post the street addresses of every location it has picked up
or dropped off at in the last year on its website in real time? Can it post
the apartment numbers? No identifiers, mind you - just the LI.
