You can't close your eyes for cold figures. How many people are using Jabber? 
How many are using MSN, AIM or ICQ?

Do the math. Or should we also remove all IE-compatible hacks from KHTML, use 
our own video codecs instead of Xine (which allows to use proprietary DDLs 
through Wine), remove the SMB file sharing and lan browsing and more?
