Well. The Facebook app already does messaging, with push working notifications, you can even pin the messages section of the app as a live tile and it'll show the notifications accordingly. However, the app does seem bloated. I'd very much prefer a standalone app. Also, joe said "More apps coming from partners over the next few weeks" on stage, so I hope this app is actually developed by Facebook, unlike the "official" Facebook app for WP that is sadly developed by Microsoft.
