Flash XMPP and Jingle workarounds both fit into this pattern:

Client -> Proprietary crap -> Gateway -> Standard stuff   -> Network

Legacy transports fit into this pattern:

Client -> Standard stuff   -> Gateway -> Proprietary crap -> Network

Two things switch places, but I wouldn't call that "totally" different.
