is it really necessary to copy everything right after apple released it? This "online account panel".

It was introduced in 10.7 Lion, now it's in Gnome 3.2 and it's nearby a 1:1 copy...

It could easily be the other way around - Lion hasn't been out that long, and the Gnome devs have been talking about the Online Accounts Panel for a long time now (in the context of how to better handle Contacts).
