I suspect this is the gist.  It used to be that we required standard
protocols at the endpoint.  As Dave's mention of IM clients shows,
that's necessary if there is no coordination among services.  But if
there is coordination among services, such that using any one service
allows you to reach anyone on any service, then you don't need
standardized UIs.
