User question: how do I express that the URI is appropriate for both personal and business communication? If it should be TYPE=BUSINESS,PERSONAL maybe it should be mentioned that types are not exclusive.

Comment (2006-09-12 for -)
Might want to mention that some vendors have already extended the vcard format to include IM addresses. For example, my Apple AddressBook vcard has <stuff that I cannot paste here but will send by email, because a tracker bug renders the comment empty if I do>. Section 1., paragraph 4: > "sip" indicates to use SIP/SIMPLE, > "xmpp" indicates to use XMPP, > "irc" indicates to use IRC, > "ymsgr" indicates to use yahoo, > "msn" might indicate to use Microsoft messenger, > "aim" indicates to use AOL, and > "im" or "pres" indicates to use a CPIM or CPP gateway. Nit: Insert a space before the reference. Section 2., paragraph 8: > o An indication of the type of communication for which this URI is > appropriate. This can be a value of PERSONAL or BUSINESS. > o An indication of the location of a device associated with this > URI. Values can be HOME, WORK, or MOBILE. This set of options only encodes a very limited set of usage scenarios. Is there any rationale that these are sufficient or useful? (Since they cannot be omitted according to the ABNF.) Is there any definition of the semantics of the tags?
