The Presence Information Data Format (PIDF) defines a basic XML format for presence information. The optional contact element in PIDF contains a URI that ultimately resolves to a network interface on some device. Currently, the ways of expressing features related to that interface are limited. PIDFConn defines an extension to PIDF for describing features of connectivities and the cost of using services.
