Real-Time (Web) Convergence

Question: why are email, facebook, Twitter, chat, RSS, newspapers all separated?

I want to be able to do the same thing for all of them – which was more or less nailed by email a decade ago:

real-time update (push)
mark as read
thread
filter
spam detection
contact management
search

So why not pull all of these into an email client?

I was thinking about this this afternoon, and when I saw a Techcrunch article about Xonbi Facebook integration I had to blog.
