I wouldn't worry about things like multi-touch as part of the SoC project.
Those features can come later; for the SoC, I think the most important things
are that we have a working implementation of UI for the request API and notify
API, and some sort of functioning buddy list and conversation window.  Windows 7
support can come once Windows 7 is released, as it's not really that important
to take advantage of new OS features before the OS is officially available.
