Description:In pjsip.conf we have

;==========================CONTACT SECTION OPTIONS=========================
;  SYNOPSIS: A way of creating an aliased name to a SIP URI
;type=  ; Must be of type contact (default: "")
;uri=   ; SIP URI to contact peer (default: "")
;expiration_time=       ; Time to keep alive a contact (default: "")
;qualify_frequency=0    ; Interval at which to qualify a contact (default: "0")
;outbound_proxy=        ; Outbound proxy used when sending OPTIONS request
                       ; (default: "")

I believe we don't have an example for it in the first half of the config file because it is more for internal use and not intended to be user configurable.

If that is the case then we should make it clear in the reference section or else remove it.

I'm of the opinion that it should be removed. The proper way to specify a contact would be using "contact" on the AOR.
