Hi Patrick,

I don't think it's a big problem. After all, it would be a plugin. And 
the question of relevance is well, subjective. For example, you can 
consider IM as a good alternative for only shortly relevant 1-sentence 
emails, which doesn't require any maintenance (as in, cleaning your 
inbox). Imagine you want to go for a lunch with a few colleagues from 
another part of the building. You can discuss the place in an email 
thread (which will inevitably fork into subthreads at some point), or 
you can simply start a group chat. Guess which is more convenient. ;)
