It would be good if we had standardized methods for embedding presence
information in web pages. For example, I'd like to be able to point to
the following image file and have it show my presence:

<img src='http://www.jabber.org/users/stpeter.png'/>

Granted there are challenges here:

1. Needs to be opt-in (no presence leaking)

2. User needs a way to choose icon set (if there's a choice)

3. Jabber server and web server need to share information

4. Would not be dynamic (that would require an xmpp: URI)

At the jabber.org domain, #3 is a bit of a pain (the web server and
jabber server are on different machines), but the challenge seems to be
surmountable.

Other IM systems have this and it's one of those cool features that end
users really like. So what's holding us back? What's needed to make this
happen?
