/**
 * This class represent a Contact List node or leaf in the Model/View paradigm.
 *
 * The Model is a way to universally represent data which could be reused later by different views:
 * for example, the contact list, or a list of contacts available to be invited in a chat. The data is
 * organized in form of a tree, with a root element containing the user's groups, and the contacts within
 * the groups.
 * The Model Item is an element of the tree. It can assume the role of a root element, of a node (a group) or
 * of a contact (a leaf).
 * The data output by the model items can be easily expanded for future uses.
