I'm not sure about alternate delivery protocol, but creating a rapidly 
changing presence data set is exactly what myself and others are working 
on with the MeNow project: , soon to 
move to .

Combining data from services like AudioScrobbler [1], LiveJournal [2], 
and other services that offer a web protocol for their data, we hope to 
create a generalized way in RDF to describe all the "I'm currently..." 
things that people include in their blogs, from books they are reading 
to albums they're currently listening to to where they currently are.

This is a relatively recent development as a concentrated effort - I've 
been working towards it in the background for months, but lately I've 
even got some working code (check out for example) 
that uses it.

Myself and others are going to work more on this, and getting tools to 
consume and create this data. Stay tuned.
