SIMPLE for Presence and IM

I think this is a natural service that should be included. Presence is impotant for call handling decisions too.

Some presence capability is already built into sipsorcery. Once example is the Switchboard which can display whether extensions are online or not.

The presence implementation was also tested with CounterPath's softphones when it was written and it should still work with them. Sending SIP MESSAGE requests for instant messaging also should work fine. However in most cases SIP phones don't have great implementations of those two features and presence and IM has never taken off.
