You're making a large (and frequently made) leap of faith here, from "communication" to "replication with successful mutation". There are several experiments in the field of mutating programs (look up Artificial Life in Google, for example), but to suggest that the mere ability of viruses to communicate with each other will automatically lead to "breeding" capability is a little far-fetched, to say the least.
