It is possible that XMPP will be used mainly for enterprise IM inside
organizations, and for things other than person-to-person chat (there
is a lot happening these days with machine-to-machine communication in
the broad sense), whereas person-to-person chat will happen using
other technologies (IMHO likely p2p, not a decentralized server
model). But my crystal ball is not 100% accurate. ;-)
