I know this wouldn't do the whole job, but has anyone considered an
addition to the spec that allows adding emblems to StatusIcons? For
example, there could be a Play and Pause emblem, and some kind of
standard message count emblem that gets drawn on the fly. (With the
added benefit that a text-centric interface could also show the message
count since the necessary data is all there).

If it hasn't been discussed, maybe worth some pondering, and if it has
in recent history, I for one would love to know the verdict :)
