This scenario should probably be superseeded by establishing the mechanisms to exchange presence information ("on the phone") rather than be implemented specifically as an instant request-response mechanism for participation in collaborative editing sessions, requiring Robert to respond as fast (while on the phone) for Susy to have the appropriate expectations, and should probably be formulated in a way that allows the participants (invitor and invitee alike) to expect an asynchronous and delayed responses.

There's an argument for the exchange of presence information as well as one for visibility on general scheduling and availability information (Free/Busy).
