IMHO the state of Empathy (running/not running) should be remembered automatically (there shouldn't be a need to save the desktop session).

See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=506311 for the upstream Empathy bug for this. See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79285#c14 for how Havoc Penningtion & co solved it in Mugshot (but I think there is a better way with the new session stuff, see AutostartCondition in http://live.gnome.org/SessionManagement/NewGnomeSession).

Doesn't seem like upstream likes this idea but I think it's the right way to go from an interaction design viewpoint. (It's a bit unclear to me if the upstream bug was fixed properly or not. See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=506311#c15 .)
