The presence state described, in part, by this element.

A presence state indicates the availability of the presentity and is a combination of the online status and willingness. A user may be online (available), offline (away) or somewhere in-between (inactive). Willingness indicates the current activity or permissions an online user can be called upon to communicate. An online user could be busy talking with someone else on the phone (busy, in a call) or do not want to be disturbed (DND).
