Edema is damaging blisters on the leaves
These spots are living on the leaves leaving no damage, almost like a lichen.

I treat plants for a living and am familiar with edema.
These jasmine do not receive watering. Only rain.

May not be rust, but edema.

See http://homeguides.sfgate.com/....

Edema in this case means supersaturated with water. The leaves retain the appearance, but the edema is just a reaction to too much water. Not bad for the plant. Cut down on watering, and allow the plant to dry out several days between thorough watering.

Still very interested in an ID

Perhaps a rust of some kind?

This was growing on the top side of leaves, on a Jasmine vine.
