So it's problematic that the feature get oldish and it creates more
confusion than being useful. So I agree to disable it. The problem is that
disabling it means it will not be used anymore at all, so a better solution
would be to remove it from XE/Platform instead.

I understand that this means more work since it's integrated in AS and
Profile, but I want to raise a point for this use case.

One of the problems I see with XWiki Applications is their ability to
interconnect between them. For example, I would like to install the Meeting
app and that if I also install the Calendar app, the meetings would also be
displayed in the Calendar, and not be independent pages.

The same is also for the Message Stream app. This app was integrated to
display it's messages in Activity Stream, to be able to follow someone from
the User Profile and to display just an user messages in the Profile. We
had integration into several applications and although maybe the feature
was not complete or not very useful for our users, it affected multiple
zones of the UI.

Since we don't have any easy 'insertion/app collaborations' mechanisms is
hard for us to remove the Message Stream from XE, and is hard for us to
make multiple apps interconnect.

I'm not sure these kind of "magic integration mechanisms" (it goes beyond
UIXP since you need also API) exists or if it means just plain old good
coding :) between apps, but it's just a point I wanted to make.
