I think the reason for Peter's blog was to address our failure to deliver on 
the ease-of-use front.  Servers are a pain to set up, and clients can't 
compete with MSN Messenger.  This has less to do with standards adherance, 
and more to do with making things simple and "slick".  Compliance is 
important, but it was just one of many requirements he listed.
