Transition from OMX_StateIdle to OMX_StatePause

Greetings everyone,

I have a question concerning the state transitions.
The state transition diagram in the IL specs basically shows that the direct transition from Idle to Pause is allowed.
On the other hand, I couldn’t find any description for that transition anywhere in the specifications (1.1.2 & 1.2.0)

So, is this direct transition allowed or not? And if the answer is “yes”, I would greatly appreciate any clarifications on the nuances such a transition has.

Thanks in advance.
