Remember that any user of a domain can enable Google Apps without 
authorization from an administrator of the domain.  In order to disable 
Chat from your domain that was created in this fashion, you have to go 
through the domain authorization process and accept their license 
agreement.  By doing this, you boost G-Apps' number of authorized active 
domains, which further justifies their domain-hijacking practices.
