Because it's irc.debian.org not jabber.debian.org nor
yourfavoritechatprotocol.debian.org? Because people actually use IRC
to discuss Debian related issues?

So why not start up a jabber.debian.net if it doesn't already exist,
and see who joins and holds dicsussions there? If you get enough
participtation, and there's a reasonable open project to point
jabber.debian.org to, I'd imagine it would be an easy case to make.
