Sirius and XM Satellite Radio to Merge?

There's been a lot of speculation as to whether or not Sirius plans to buy out XM, which is discussed by Nicole Ridgway at SmartMoney.  One point raised is the possibility of offering a merged cell phone-based service that would compete with future entrants:

Dix suggests that the satellite-radio operators could expand their offerings to consumers by partnering with telecom providers and offering music via cellphones. It would help fend off recent entrants in the cellphone streaming market like Motorola's (MOT) yet-to-be-launched iRadio, a subscription-based service that offers commercial-free programming not unlike Sirius's offerings.

Interesting thought...  If such an offering takes place before iRadio can go live, Moto will be in for a much tougher battle than earlier thought.
