"If someone at AOL or Netscape or whatever felt it was necessary to create a mail client, news, compose, chat, etc. that is (sort of) fine."

But that's exactly what happened. Someone thought of creating chatzilla because it interested him, and it grew popular that people wanted it part of the suite, and it eventually did. Same story with multizilla and soon with calendar.

This is actually healthy for the community. Not like it is taking away focus, because people work on what interests them.
