I'm not an expert in this area, but...

Wouldn't MSN Messenger and YIM etc. connect with one (or a limited
number of) server(s), which could then be blocked using some
source/destination rules.

Kazaa clients would be a problem, but again the server should be
block'able in much the same way.

... Or am I missing something?
