Sorry, have to totally disagree with you here. I enjoy the
distinction and in fact use all 3 every day.
Chat = human to human
Headlines = news or any sort of automated receipt. Machine -> Human.
My RSS bots use headline.
Messages are, well, messages. They are more "stateful" than IM,
slightly less so than email.
I use message a lot. If I want to paste anything over say, 10 lines
of text I'll pop that into a message window. I've taken a large piece
of data out-of-band and I'm delivering it in a way that is easier to
read, at least how I use my jabber client. My chat window tabset
stays the same (small) size at all times. My message window I might
make 800x600 to hold some code. In addition, all offline messages
that I send are messages.
