Ballot Text

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 focuses on providing "business card" like
information in a presence document, including a card element
that can hold a vCard, a display name, a URI for a homepage,
a URI for an icon representing the presentity, a URI for
a map related to the presentity, and a URI for a sound
related to the entity.

  This document reflects WG consensus. It is related to, and was
  split out from, the Rich Presence Information Document format
  (RPID) work to facilitate building consensus.
