This sounds like a good idea indeed! I like the idea of being able to
have a good idea of how urgent a response is based on just looking at
the applet, and having applications able to specify this. This way it
could be more granular than just application; if we look at Gwibber,
perhaps tweets would be green, replies would be yellow, and DMs would
be red. I agree with your other assessments as well; having emails as
yellow and IMs as red seems logical.
