A public GRUU is valid forever for a sip.instance and should propably be saved into some sort of database table. A temporary GRUU is only valid for as long as a device registers with the same Call-ID.

If r-uri is a gruu, then lookup(location) searches for an exact match on temp/pub gruu value and will not add extra branches with the rest of records for the AoR (if pub-gruu), just updates with the record for the r-uri.

Reading source code and documentation again...

I see that the gruu_enabled() parameter enables gruu if there's an instance ID in the contact.

The requirement is also that there has to be a supported: gruu

The instance ID is used without GRUU (like in OUTBOUND), so just checking that is not a good indication
that you have GRUU support in the UA.

" When a UA compliant to this specification generates a REGISTER
   request (initial or refresh), it MUST include the Supported header
   field in the request.  The value of that header field MUST include
   "gruu" as one of the option tags.  This alerts the registrar for the
   domain that the UA supports the GRUU mechanism."

From RFC 5627.

Disclaimer: I've only read the source code. Ashamed that I haven't tried. Will do a.s.a.p.
