The Presence Information Document Format (PIDF) specifies the
baseline XML-based format for describing presence information.  One
of the characteristics of the PIDF is that the document always needs
to carry all presence information available for the presentity.  In
some environments where low bandwidth and high latency links can
exist, it is often beneficial to limit the amount of transported
information over the network.  This document introduces a new MIME
type that enables transporting of either only the changed parts or
the full PIDF-based presence information.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
