You shouldn't need permission just to invoke the SMS card

That is kind of interesting. Because the documentation says that the permission is required to create text messages.
The same holds for the permissions access_pimdomain_messages and access_phone. It seems all these permissions are not required to invoke cards.

You need the permissions to access the APIs directly. The idea being that with the API, you could be silently sending SMSs or whatever without the user knowing, which is bad without permisison, but with the card it's obvious to the user what's going on. They can customize what's being sent or even not send it at all.

Yeah, it's kind of confusing. And same goes for internet permission. You must have it (i think), but it works (at least in development) even without it. I wish there was more documentation about it.
