There are many platforms/version that live and die, much faster than
desktop/laptop platforms (well, they are basically the samone three
ones since ages), one set for all stuff mobile seems OK to me.

If we add the most present mobile platforms, we could add iPhone,
Android, Symbian, WM, Brew, BlackBerry... which is too much. Much more
when we consider platform versions.

It might not be fair since they are using XMPP and are interop (I
think, gotta check) with the federation (S2S activated). It is the
same for Meebo, GTalk, Gizmo (and the now-defunct Mabber), plus more
than I have forgotten.

A different category should be fine, named like 'services'.

A flat categorization might not be the solution. A table would suit
better imho, with entries like in horizontal platforms (Linux, Mac,
Win, Mobile, web, etc.) and vertical a categorization like XMPP-only,
multi-protocol, service-specific, etc.
