Hi Frederick,
a few thoughts on the Messaging features:

1) Subscribe to SMS message notifications
The correct mapping of http://bondi.omtp.org/api/1.1/messaging.sms.subscribe is android.permission.RECEIVE_SMS ("Allows an application to monitor incoming SMS messages, to record or perform processing on them")

2) Subscribe to MMS message notifications
The correct mapping of http://bondi.omtp.org/api/1.1/messaging.sms.subscribe
Is android.permission.RECEIVE_MMS

3) Retrieve SMS / Retrieve MMS
The current mapping looks wrong, as features like messaging.XXX.get result in BONDI in calls to APIs such Call to MessagingManager.findXXXs [1]

I'd suggest a mapping between:
http://bondi.omtp.org/api/1.1/messaging.sms.get <-> android.permission.READ_SMS

4) Write message / Send message features
The current list implies that DAP will specify different features for creating a { sms, binary-sms, email, mms } and for sending it. I'd keep only the permission to send a message, as it implies the permission to create one.
Or maybe I'm just misinterpreting the android.permission.WRITE_SMS permission?

Oggetto: Re: Features draft - next steps

Android has a list of permissions [1].  These are strings, not URIs, but we can compare the granularity and operations included.

In some cases they may be essentially the same as the BONDI features [2], but we have to be careful since the meaning might be different even if the name appears the same.

I've updated  the Features draft to list the Android permissions that appear to correspond to the DAP APIs, and also updated the references, and coalesced a variety of similar warning notes.

I'm going to take a look at comparing the meanings of the various items.

I think we need to review/prune the list for messaging, can anyone please help with that?

regards, Frederick
