It is a hypothetical, but you never answered "what’s to stop them?"

That’s my point. Because there are "other ways" apple doesn’t feel it necessary to support standard protocols so what’s to stop them from dropping phone service or sms/mms?
Operationally, yes. Philosophically, no.
Given enough market share, I can totally see Apple starting to deprecate existing standard protocols. even going as far as dropping traditional phone service. Want full "voice" functionality to talk with your grandma? Have her buy an iPhone.

What if Apple decides they don’t want to support email protocols. Or SMS/MMS?
