Very good idea. Get it integrated into Ubuntu properly for some time,  
_then_ make it the prominent default tool.

This way you can put Empathy on the public schedule for Intrepid+1 
(+2?) and add a note there:

"If you want to test or use this app now, apt-get it into your  
current Ubuntu."

This likely helps to settle Empathy's integration and getting it a  
lot more testing before it's meant to give those important first  
impressions of Ubuntu.
