In the long run, I agree I'd like to get rid of the old MSN-t, but what 
about migration? Will, when MSN7 is no longer supported, you be able to 
easily migrate users from MSN-t to MSN-tng? I can imagine there are 
thing higher on your priority list if you want to make the deadline. If 
this won't be possible before the deadline, will it become possible
