These may be undocumented in the "Protocol-standard" document, but 
they're covered in the "jabber:iq:roster" section of the Jabber Protocol 
Overview, and also in my Jabber Client Developer's Cheat Sheet.

It's definitely a problem that none of the documentation is 
comprehensive. I had to develop my own client (and write my cheat-sheet) 
by having printouts of both the JPO and JPG open in front of me and 
constantly flipping back and forth between them. (And to get 
conferencing working, I had to go to the protocol-draft document for 
that, since the stuff in both of the previously mentioned documents is 
out of date.)
