We are playing with this at work...

Our chat windows are Webkit views, and we can easly create a XMPP dom  
object that gives access to the roster and other information of the  

Its also interesting because we can give JS+XMPP applets running  
inside the chat window a channel between several buddies (using a  
private chatroom in our first implementation, but Pubsub is in the  
roadmap) for events.

We are calling these XMPP+JS+HTML apps running inside the client  
Xiclets... The final idea would be to spec a standard file format  
(probably a zip file with a xml-based manifest) that could be easy  
way to distribute the apps.
