Simple Sharing Extensions by M$

Microsoft Corp. is said be currently working on an extension for RSS feed. It is said to be named as Simple Sharing Extensions. The new extensions will add the pwer of calendring and sharing of contact lists between indivduals to the popular RSS.
The idea is to use OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language), which is used to
allow exchange of outline-structured information between applications and RSS,
to create a new format to allow exchange of data.
Ozzie explains that RSS on
its own is not sufficient as it is essentially a 'one way' transfer mechanism
aimed a broadcasting from a central point rather than his vision of a 'mesh' of
feeds between many different people.
SSE has already been discussed among
various interested groups within Microsoft. Now the company has published a
draft specification for SSE on its website for discussion.

Now a hundred dollar question. Sharing of contact lists? Aren't we feed up with having enough spam in our mail box?
