[Juser] Federating Openfire/Spark with BlackBerry

Hi everyone!  I'm a new member, so forgive me if this has been asked a 
million times - I'd like some advice on getting my desktop Spark IM 
client to federate with the BlackBerries my co-workers and I use.  I'd 
need to buy/install third-party app licenses for each of the 
BlackBerries my company uses and communicate with my Openfire server 
from the devices...but sadly I can't initiate a conversation with RIM's 
network using Spark.  This is really unfortunate.

Can anyone shed any light on this?  Might this be an issue just with 
Openfire for which the community can just build a plugin (I was 
surprised to learn that none exists).  Or is this RIM just wanting to 
limit control of the ways in which people interact with their users?
