Here is some input to the Contacts API requirements for next week:

1) There should be a requirement supporting discovery of supported fields:
* It MUST be possible to discover the supported fields for Contacts entries.

2) There should be a requirement supporting clearing of a set of Contacts entries, e.g. a specific entry or the results of a search:
* It MUST be possible to clear a list of Contacts entries.

3) There should be a requirement supporting clearing of all Contacts entries.
* It MUST be possible to clear all Contacts entries.

Re "Are there convincing use cases for supporting multiple address books in v1 (as opposed to just a default one, and maybe exposing more later)?": Yes, there are convincing use cases. It has been a standard feature in mobile phones for as long as contacts have been a feature, that there is a phone-based contact list and a SIM-based contact list. These two address books, at least, should be supported.

Best regards,
