That's great, in principle that sounds like a totally right way to go. 
Yet at the same time most people raise the need for a precise 
information about their connection status.
One of the things we're debating on now is what the user *really* needs 
to see on his panel as a persistent indicator. One of the results of 
this debate is already visible in Jaunty, with messaging indicator 
aiming to replace all the various icons thrown in by different messaging 
apps. The next steps will inevitably include the N-M behaviours and 
icons, and it would be great to hear what the individual views on that are.
