Technical Summary This document utilizes the extention mechanisms within the Presence Information Document Format (PIDF) adding optional elements with additional information about the presentity and its contacts. This extension includes information about what the person is doing, a grouping identifier for a tuple, when a service or device was last used, the type of place a person is in, what media communications might remain private, the relationship of a service tuple to another presentity, the person's mood, the time zone it is located in, the type of service it offers, and an icon reflecting the presentity's status and the overall role of the presentity. Working Group Summary This document has been through many extensive working group discussions. It reflects a strong working group consensus. Protocol Quality Robert Sparks was the PROTO sheperd for this document. Ted Hardie reviewed the document for the IESG. Interoperable exchange of presence documents using these extensions has been seen at several of the SIP Interoperability Test Events (SIPITs).
