So why not start to propose libempathy as a blessed dependency and start
the actual development of these features? I'd rather see libempathy as a
dependency of some features before asking it to be included.

This is not a rant against libempathy, but against putting more load on
the maintainers of current modules, like »libempathy is there, so
evolution guys, you have 6 months for integration«. The seahorse team
has done a really great job in getting these tasks up. So please lets go
back to business and propose implemented features and not blue-sky ideas
(I also think that this was part of the reason why the tracker
application failed some cycles ago).
