Google failed to note the correlation of the drop in federated XMPP 
connections with the fact that Google Apps (which internally federates 
its hosted domains) and Office 365 (which doesn't support XMPP 
federation) are gobbling up the market as organizations move to the cloud.

Oh well ... it always troubled me that people trusted Google's support 
for open protocols as somehow permanent to the nature of the company.
