Google Talk and Dreamhost

There was a post on the Google Blog that Google Talk is now supporting XMPP open federation. I do not pretend to know all that much (at all!) about XMPP or how this works exactly. But I do know that my Dreamhost account includes its own Jabber server/service. I have not had any occaision to actually use this before. But now with Google Talk allowing for open federation, I wonder if this means that Dreamhost will be able to synch up with them and then I could have Google Talk people instant messaging me through a domain hosted at Dreamhost. Interesting concept. Guess we'll see how it shakes out.
