XMPP Gateway for OCS

Ran across an interesting Microsoft support page today which indicates a XMPP Gateway is slated to arrive for OCS 2007 R2 fairly soon. You have to think this gateway would open up the ability to federate with XMPP/Jabber based networks such as Google Talk. The availability date mentions 9/28/2009 so this shouldn't be too far off if it is really happening.
