I see two possible user stories:

a) drag&drop friends from your account A to your acount B

b) have a tool that will perform "account migration", i.e. you enter the
credentials to your old account and to your new account and the tool
will automatically move all your contacts from A to B.

The latter is useful if you find yourself on a (semi)abandoned or
unstable server - some servers grow over time and become unusable,
others just cease to be maintained or lack useful features like MAM,
Carbons or CSI. It would be great for users to be able to migrate and to
take their address book in an easy and automated way.
