They don't right now. But it's more than just a wish.

When Google and Skype announced a major cooperation deal in August they 
said that they "will also explore interoperability between Skype and 
Google Talk via open standards to enable text chat and online presence."

Skype is certainly seriously considering XMPP. I'm looking forward to 
the day they switch on support.
