i think we can say, that AIM/Yahoo IM/Jabber are pretty old now. On the one hand i would say: Drop this and leave the implementation to a plugin (me: +1). On the other hand (if it doesn´t get dropped) i would say: extend it. As a minimum i would say: Add Skype.
I found the related function in /wp-includes/registration.php
but i don´t know where this get´s saved in the db. if it´s the user_meta-table it should be no problem to pass ex. skype into the functions array. (but i would really like to see this getting depr.)
