    Yes. Do the following simple three steps:

    1. Functionally align the current JEP-0060 PubSub effort with
RFC3265 and associated efforts which come out of the SIP/SIMPLE world.
Ensure that PubSub in both worlds can inter-operate.
    2. Redefine Jabber/XMPP Presence so that it is layered on top of the
PubSub package currently being developed in JEP-0060. Presence should be
nothing more than an "event package" or data type which is carried over
the PubSub transport.
    3. Agree on a common format for presence information between SIMPLE
and XMPP.

	Easy... :-)
