This will largely be determined by whatever decisions are made
upstream in the GNOME project. (Chat is integrated into several key
GNOME modules - such as the shell and the control center - so it's not
simply a matter of switching packages around.)
That said, I'm sure that the GNOME release team would welcome input on
the subject. (They have discussed this subject recently themselves.)
Sure, but one of the most important ideas behind Fedora Workstation is
not to wait for whatever upstream comes up with, package it and ship it
to users, but to communicate with upstream, participate there, and bring
the best experience to our users.
So I think it's not a bad idea to start the discussion downstream and
then provide input to involved upstream projects.
