Paul says in the e-mail I referred to (sorry, missed this earlier)

"Finally, I would like to point out that "hold" is an informal concept as 
far as sip is concerned. There is no formal way for one UA to tell 
another it is on "hold", or even a definition of what that means. All 
that one UA can tell another is how it wishes to manage the media. The 
concept of "hold" is really a local implementation and UI issue."
