OK I'll try to spell it out...

The point I was trying to make is and was that the same requirements
and UCs that apply to email apply equally well to XMPP. The fact that
XMPP _has_ store-and-forward capabilities doesn't mean it is _exactly_
the same thing as email.

I believe the difficulty of building web-only XMPP clients and the
fact that plasma-like capabilities are probably equally useful for
XMPP as for email is a response to Stephens question "Why not build
a web-applications?".

	Cheers Leif
