The discussion in the PUSH feature request explain how the XF team is looking at implementing PUSH:
Its both bad. AFAIK AddThis has been removed from XF since XF2. Gravatar is still in XF2 though.
If they go the native push for everybody route.. then
Opera and google use GCM (or firebase) so the user will have to navigate through thousands of menus to create a project and support is a nightmare.
Firefox has its own push server system, which you'd need to configure.
Apple, well you'll probably need to pay them $100 a year, buy a mac or have somebody create the p12 certificate, submit it to their store somehow (you have to do this for safari)...
You -could- use amazon SMS, but again you have to setup each service and each of those services are not intuitive.
You -could- pay onesignal an annual subscription and negate the issue concerning privacy.. not that google analytics, advertising (adsense etc), embedded objects, external js, cdn's all suck user data and squirrel it away...
