The Scary Reality of IMS...

Is this what IMS will come down to? I'm torn to bits between the good and the bad of IMS.  I'm looking for someone to share what the good bits could be. other than simple presence features, and the ability to perhaps have a communications service that would mean ONE PHONE that would be capable of cellular services (EVDO), WiFi, and VoIP. Now, I CAN see value in that ;-) I'm not convinced though that IMS is going to make that possible.
