Indeed. For example, as Alan mentioned previously, AIM voice/video  
uses a different mechanism entirely which is similar to but not  
compatible with ICE.  I have read about Yahoo and MSN video in the  
past and never heard of ICE before this discussion, which makes me  
think they aren't utilizing it, either.  If it's *equally  
straightforward* to implement ICE in a protocol agnostic way, that's  
superior, but I don't think we need to over-engineer this.
