Apple's Mac OS X 10.5 Snow Leopard Server Not Playing Nicely with iPhone?

Ars Technica puts font to screen explaining how, even after the jump to version 10.5 Snow Leopard (and several updates), Apple's own Mac OS X Server still fails to integrate push notification and other compatibility for the iPhone:

The iPhone's e-mail, contact, and calendar features integrate poorly into a Mac OS X Server environment, and even after Snow Leopard Server's (SLS) release, they continue to lack instant push delivery capabilities for e-mail, contacts, and calendars to an iPhone from a Mac server. Irony of ironies, the iPhone works better in a Microsoft Exchange world than with Apple’s own server.

Mind boggling. Read the whole article for the technical details and if you're Apple, let's get that fixed, shall we?
