It's selective federation. In essence they've whitelisted Google Talk
and don't connect to anyone else. However, the fact that they have SRV
records instead of just IP addresses that they tell only to Google
indicates to me that they might have plans to open up federation more
widely. Let's not forget that Google didn't federate at all for the
first six months...
