The SIP event notification framework describes the usage of the
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for subscriptions and notifications
of changes to a state of a resource.  The document does not describe
a mechanism whereby filtering of event notification information can
be achieved.  Filtering is a mechanism for defining the preferred
notification information to be delivered and for specifying triggers
that cause that information to be delivered.  In order to enable
this, a format is needed to enable the subscriber to describe the
state changes of a resource that cause notifications to be sent to it
and what those notifications are to contain.  This document presents
a format in the form of an XML document.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
