Not really. The high-volume distribution scenarios tend to appear in 
closed environments where encryption is not required. I don't expect 
XMPP to be really well-performing here, but there's no much point of 
using XMPP is such an environment anyway.

On the other hand, in low-volume over-the-internet messaging, XMPP may 
be interesting. Actually, I am starting to like the idea of the plug-in 
- not least because there is an active community around XMPP that may 
help with implementing particular features. The other way round, this 
may be an interesting toehold in financials for XMPP community.
