Yes, good idea. I'll see what I can cook up. :)

At the same time I might incorporate requests I've had for a few minor 
additions to some of the payload formats -- e.g., a <uri/> element in 
the tune format to point to a page about the track or artist. In fact 
that might be nice for geoloc too (the x:oob stuff in the existing 
examples is potentially confusing I think, what does the url refer to?).

So something like this?

<presence from='juliet at example.com/923840waslfkjql3wrjalsf49waulfjf'>
   <desc xmlns='urn:xmpp:desc'>balcony</desc>
