In multimedia communications, presence, and instant messaging
systems, there is a need to define Uniform Resource Identifiers
(URIs) that represent services that are associated with a group of
users.  One example is a resource list service.  If a user sends a
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) SUBSCRIBE message to the URI
representing the resource list service, the server will obtain the
state of the users in the associated group, and provide it to the
sender.  To facilitate definition of these services, this
specification defines two Extensible Markup Language (XML) documents.
One document contains service URIs, along with their service
definition and a reference to the associated group of users.  The
second document contains the user lists that are referenced from the
first.  This list of users can be utilized by other applications and
services.  Both documents can be created and managed with the XML
Configuration Access Protocol (XCAP).  [STANDARDS TRACK]
