+      <li>known - the group of all contacts known by the connection manager.

+      in the known list: it can be useful if the server stores metadata
+      on contacts.

-    least in the known list.</p>
+    <p>A contact can be in several server-defined lists. All lists are
+    optional to implement. When a specific list is not implemented,
+    RequestChannel returns org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Error.NotAvailable and
+    clients MUST behave as if it was empty.</p>
     <p>These contact list channels may not be closed.</p>
