I'm sure of it - because it's going to "kill" all remaining traces of privacy on facebook.
I can see it now:
Facebook's Exciting NEW feature is Social Mail! Now your friends have access to, and can send email from your account! Imagine how exciting that will be!!!
(Small print: We take your privacy seriously! In order to help you and your friends talk with each other easier, we've taken the liberty of setting your default email account access to "everyone in the world". We'll actually be supplying people with laptops just so they can access your email)
