If we really want to be imperialistic about it, we can use the term "IM
address" -- as in, we *are* the standard way to do IM. And there is an
im: URI scheme too (but its semantics are confusing, it's just a way of
invoking a standards-based IM system such as XMPP or SIMPLE, not sure if
you can use it to invoke AIM or things like that).
