RFC 3953        ENUM Registration for Presence Services     January 2005

1. Introduction

   ENUM (E.164 Number Mapping, RFC 3761 [1]) is a system that uses DNS

   (Domain Name Service, RFC 1034 [8]) to translate telephone numbers,

   such as +12025332600, into URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers, RFC

   2396 [9]), such as pres:user@host.com.  ENUM exists primarily to

   facilitate the interconnection of systems that rely on telephone

   numbers with those that use URIs to identify resources.

   Presence is a service defined in RFC 2778 [2] that allows users of a

   communications service to monitor one another's availability and

   disposition in order to make decisions about communicating.  Presence

   information is highly dynamic and generally characterizes whether a
