No. For the same reason I don't think that Gmail should be implemented 
by going to "imap:mail.google.com/inbox" and having the browser 
implement a mail reading user interface or it own (or even having a page 
that contains "<showIMAPinterface mailbox='inbox' 
server='mail.google.com'/>").

We should be providing components that allow for all manners for 
real-time communication applications to be built using HTML and 
JavaScript, not baking a phone into the browser.
