Thanks for the interest. We looked at it as well, but it's not trivial 
due to the bugs you listed

That's work that needs to happen upstream, not sure what's the status 
there (or we could drop support, on the default installation, for the 
protocols that need libpurple)

That's not an issue one, it has quite some incompatible changes and can 
be co-installed with the old version. GNOME got ported in 3.10 (and 
still had some issues in that version), some of the other desktops are 
not. We need to transition everything in the same cycle, that was just 
not doable before the LTS. We should look at that next cycle

Note that we might be able to drop bluez-gstreamer from the default 
image, does anyone know in what situations it's useful?
