I've created a new draft of the W3C Contacts API [1] based on feedback
received to date. A CVS change log and diff [2] is also available.

The proposal is to allow Portable Contacts parameters to be represented
within the API as extensions on the recommendation that Portable Contact
attributes be first defined as extensions for use within the vCard format
for interoperability purposes.

My hope is that [3] has a role to play in this process and that strong
implementations and implementor collaboration going forward will lead the
way to defining on the most effective contacts format - whether that
incorporates social data (and logically the Portable Contacts schema) or
