I agree. Its more for people who have a corp server which is internally 
signed.

To give you more background the Palm Pre uses libpurple and they have a 
custom wrapper around it.
Out of the box they supply Aim and Gtalk. On some configs they offer Yahoo.

I have added jabber, icq, live, group wise etc etc. Now people are 
connecting to their internal corporate servers which do not have externally 
signed certs.
At least in pigdin they have a prompt to say the PC doesn't trust the cert 
and you can trust it if you want.
