Being common is not of particular use actually. The ability to
properly maintain semantics is relevant and another aspect came
to my mind: the way you can throw any binary blob into it without
further processing -- so having a meme gif or a profile jpeg
doesn't require any conversion or reference to out-of-band

The relevant concepts here are how everything is a pubsub channel,
profiles are aggregations of pubsubs and any pubsub can scale
up to endless amount of users by multicast distribution (unlike
those dirty hack pubsubs like PubSubHubbub or IPFS pubsub).

I was thinking of leveraging the fact that people *also* need
Telegram and would possibly appreciate a Telegram client which
*additionally* supports GNUnet for actual private chat.

Considering also that Telegram will start putting advertisements
into large channels… so people will have an interest in
migration but remain backward compatible. Therefore having
yet another messenger isn't as interesting as offering a
full service slide from current to next generation messaging.
