      The Yahoo! Mail Beta Contacts list has improved considerably but
      it's still lacking a few of the fields/features of Yahoo! Address
      Book.

      In regards to editing, many of the Address Book entry fields are
      missing from the Contacts Properties fields. Things like Personal
      Website, Company Website, Birthday, Anniversary, etc. Granted it's
      not a lot, but if you have information there in Address Book and
      Yahoo! goes to Contacts only at some point, you don't want to lose
      the info.

      Also, it would be nice if you could click on a contact and see all
      of the email distribution lists to which you've added them. You can
      see a list of their Lists in Address Book but not in Contacts.

      Categories is also missing from Contacts. In Address Book you can
      add a contact to multiple lists for different email distributions
      but they can only exist in a single Category. Perhaps Contacts
      could implement this by making the Contacts button in the left pane
      a collapsible list of categories. You could then move a contact
      from one category to another by drap/drop just as you move emails
      from one folder to another.

      I can't think of anything else that needs to be done. It's almost
      there.
