I think it'd be useful to know which protocol was used because:
1. When in a message, if the person signed off, MSN & Yahoo cache the 
message if you reply, but AIM doesn't so you don't know if they are 
going to get your message.
2. MSN doesn't say the total online time or away message when hovering, 
so you waste time hovering without getting info.
3. If you can choose which protocol to IM someone, then you have 
different smiley choices.  I memorized the keyboard ones for AIM, but i 
keep getting text, because It sometimes is msn or yahoo.

Maybe create a directory of those images, and then people can upload 
image-sets of their choosing?
