I still think the 'slick' factor can be addressed in some measure by
the certification system, though. For instance, look at all our recent
XHTML-IM discussion. Look at things like avatars, which people take
for granted on the other networks.
A certification for general standards compliance. A certification for
advanced support. Stuff like that.
But I think you already heard all my arguments on this a couple of
months ago. ;)
