Good beginning, but I dislike all examples :-)
In general, I think that sending along a start time for presence, and extended
presence sent using pubsub with an ItemID of 'current' makes little sense. We
are dealing with a near-realtime communication medium. I can think of two
- Notifications that are delivered some time after the actual publish, but
this would be something that could be changed by resp. the server and pubsub
service. Of course, jabber:x:delay comes into mind here as well.
- Automatic away/xa. One could use timeperiod for conveying the beginning of
inactivity (which is before sending the presence!).
For pubsub, I think I'd like it better if this extension would be a direct
child of the <item/>.
