I would also add that unlike the plain multi-protocol clients such as
Trillian/Gaim/etc, Jabber is a direct competitor to the new MS enterprise IM
suite.  As such I don't imagine MS will be going out of there way to see it
enhanced in any way.

The articles state that they have an objection to allowing for profit third 
party clients to connect to their network.  MS never says explicitly that 
just because a client or gateway server is free they will work with the 
software engineers in order to implement compatibility.  In fact since they 
explicitly DON'T say that I infer that they will not work with jabber.org, 
gaim, etc...
