Understand that Skype intentionally seeks to not be communicationable
from other VOIP clients. That's their strategy for increasing their
market share.

For me, that's enough for rejecting Skype altogether. Go SIP instead.
By using open standards, you don't impose any specific software on
your communication partners.
