Will Yahoo! Messenger use XMPP?

From the Yahoo! press release announcing that they are outsourcing search advertising to Google:

In addition, Yahoo! and Google agreed to enable interoperability between their respective instant messaging services, bringing easier and broader communication to users.

Gee, doesn't this sound familiar? Here's to hoping that this attempt at interoperability works better than the Google-AIM one and that this brings another player to XMPP (Yahoo! seems like it would be more supportive of open standards like XMPP than AOL-TimeWarner).
