It's not like all the other desktops aren't moving in that direction. Look at the Empathy integration in Gnome Shell (which I happen to like a lot).

Well, I don't like Gnome Shell (I've switched to KDE because of it) and Empathy (I'm used to Pidgin) but I can certainly understand how integration with IM client can be useful.

But I still don't understand why would I need to share my taskbar.

The integration to the shell is nice but the implementation kind of sucks.

It seriously needs to be tweakable. With a GUI, not scripting.

For example, message pop is far too short. I can't notice the pop and refocus to read it before it vanishes. The text is also much too small. And, being Gnome, there isn't a single option anywhere that would fix it. It also only pops on one monitor, which I might not even have in my field of view.
