IM and T.140

"Instant messaging" in general is a really crowded field of endeavour.  The
IETF had nine different protocol proposals in fromt of it.  After a heroic
effort these reduced to three.  Now JABBER is attempting to expand the field
again.  The IETF has defined a framework for presence and instant messaging
to make it easier for all of them to interwork.  I suppose at some point we
should look at how T.140 might be brought into line with this framework.

What's the difference between "instant messaging" in general and T.140? IOW,
what can you do with one that you can't do with the other?
