Pidgin supports dragging and dropping application/x-im-contact and

Obviously it's unlikely that anyone will ever dnd between Pidgin and
Empathy, but it would be nice if Empathy supported these MIME types for
interoperability with hypothetical other apps that speak these formats.
(Perhaps Evo already understands both? I can't think where else
x-im-contact would be used.)
