IMHO all messaging protocols should be done away with and replaced with Jabber.
That way we could have independence from IM companies, move freely, keep all contacts intact, etc etc...
Much like emailing you know...
I think the status quo in IMing is horrible.

I agree, heck i'm still on WLM 2009... Going to be a lot of unhappy people in March

You can have 1 window for all conversations, and you can hide the display picture.
Although saying that, I did used to prefer WLM, but my work colleagues all used skype so I had to switch.

Trillian does that now for all protocols. Sadly no WP client I'm aware of, but it works well.
Skype is totally unreliable for text messaging, all it's got is syncing messages between devices and computers.
That's the only thing that's cool in my eyes. Apart from that I actually hate messaging in Skype.

which doesn't support tabbed conversations and doesn't allow you to remove profile pictures from the chat screen.

What are you talking about? Skype supports both.

To me the problem with the modern UI app is just that you can't use it in the background. For video maybe its cool but for voice I wouldn't touch it.
The Modern UI app is just ridiculous too. A huge amount of screen estate gone to waste. They just desperately need quality control both back and front ends.
