I asked the questions, I didn't supply the answers.  So I don't very well 
know anything yet about the full consequences.

I've merely pointed out that KDE's position on these matters has never been 
stated before, and that a firm position on this would clarify the status 
of Kit and Kopete in KDE.

If it turns out that KDE developers' position is that KDE should favor 
proprietary protocols, or proprietary services, so be it.  But the 
decision should be made, instead of being left ambiguous.
