Federated for VoIP, or only for IM and presence? For the latter there is no list because XMPP uses an open federation model like email, not a closed peering model like telephony. For VoIP, there is not a lot of deployment yet (mostly Google Talk and Nimbuzz, with more coming online in the relatively near future).

One company that provides hosted XMPP services is ClearText. I am not familiar with the company, but I assume that is the kind of service you're seeking?

I expect there will be more such companies, and perhaps there are already.

In theory, yes. I can federate between Packetizer's XMPP server (running OpenFire) and GoogleTalk's servers without any problem at all. So, assuming that the SIP/XMPP gateway is designed properly, it ought to work.
