XMPP is actually a protocol not a service. As it used by both
Facebook's and Google's IM services, if your concern is time-wasting,
removing support for everything except XMPP will still leave at least
two services that many businesses would consider time wasters.
Also, as is always stated when this question is asked, it is fairly easy
for end users to locally install the bits you take away to block other
Basically, you simply remove the plugins for the protocols you don't
want used. However, the recommended way of doing it is to block access
to unwanted services in your firewall, not on the end user machines.
