JD: Yes, if it's a clearance limit, no ambiguity, no problem, orbit when you get there unless you have onward clearance. But in the case of "report...", when you know there's potentially conflicting traffic it seems to me to be irresponsible to plough on when you are unable to make your report. I'm talking here of me on a VFR transit crossing a runway with landing IFR traffic, when I would expect the ATC response to my report approaching the boundary to be a request if I'm visual with the landing traffic and if I say yes, an instruction to cross above and behind that traffic. Doing an uncleared orbit also makes me nervous, but it seems to me to be a better option than carrying on into the landing IFR's go-around path without a clearance. What do you think?
