I think you meant the singular there.  I'm pretty sure that having to register 
with one more server is no big deal to most IM users.  Hell, I'm on about 
four myself.  And all those people from the past generation are on at least 
four even before joining Jabber. ;-)

Besides, I think there is a difference between concept and implementation 
here.  Just because pubsub.com choose not to allow S2S subscriptions doesn't 
mean that the concept itself isn't a killer app.

I think you misread that article.  It said that 12% of users know what RSS is, 
but only 4% know _and_ use it.  And BTW, they only surveyed Yahoo users, not 
"Internet users" in general.

Furthermore, I think that having less people know what RSS is would actually 
be a benefit to this sort of killer app anyway.

Think about it for a second: If you saw a Jabber client that could give you 
news headlines as soon as the story comes out, would you be more impressed if 
you already knew about RSS, or if you had no idea it existed?
