A key point as a side remark:
"Do I think that IM and e-mail will become the same protocol in the end?
I think probably not. Do I think that you'll have end-user or user-agent
experiences that basically blend the two together? I think it's

Lets get rid of all IM protocols and do SMTP: Infrastructure exists,
clients are very good, no IM wars anymore, known protocol, addresse
already on business cards, MIME messages and vor the user-agent
experiences it's "inevitable". 

Just kidding,
