        Mobile Alliance (OMA) Converged Address Book (CAB) group
               draft-ietf-vcarddav-oma-cab-extensions-00

Abstract

   This document defines extensions to the vCard data format for
   representing and exchanging certain contact information.  The
   properties covered here have been defined by the Open Mobile Alliance
   Converged Address Book group, in order to synchronize, using OMA Data
   Synchronization, important contact fields that were not already
   defined in the base vCard 4.0 specification.
