As a data point, the fact that the way jabber is licensed allows
commercial clients to be built but without forcing the server and
protocol to be proprietary will, I think, be instrumental in its
success.  It's certainly given us the confidence to invest significantly
in building a jabber IM client.  In fact, I'm more or less designing our
software infrastructure around jabber; it's how all of our services will
talk to each other and to the user.
