[0] One possible answer would maybe be that those networks don't have
the critical mass required for us to spend our rare workforce on and
that we expect third party (libpurple-based?) clients to take care of
that market.

Among the free software Telepathy connection managers, the XMPP
implementation was the only one that was really very good. For the
more uncommon protocols, Telepathy already depends on libpurple via
telepathy-haze. Sometimes, these days, directly using libpurple via
pidgin is a much better option than going via Telepathy.

Guess why Pidgin showed up in RHEL 7.3. ;)
