"The parent element SHOULD contain one or more 'child' sub-element.
These child elements MUST have a 'jid' attribute, which is the jid of
the sub-contact. They can also have an OPTIONAL 'account' attribute that
defines the account to which jid belongs (this is useful for
multi-account-capable clients that also support account merging)."

Could you describe this in more detail? It's not clear to me (1) what
the 'account' attribute identifies and (2) what account merging is.

Thanks!

Peter
