there are at least a dozen different messaging apps in use today, and having to switch between them is incredibly inconvenient. Giving discord an XMPP bridge would allow us to connect with friends who use other chat services without having to use an additional application.
There are already efforts to integrate different chat services. Matterbridge for example, is opensource and, in addition to discord, has support for Gitter, IRC, Mattermost, Matrix, RocketChat, Slack, Steam, Telegram, XMPP (and their own rest API). this reduces the amount of work for the discord's developers significantly, since they would only have to integrate an existing program
