This was just an example of a more sane implementation, not an algorithm
that I think the JEP should require clients to implement. Having said
that, I think requiring at least this is better then requiring less
(e.g., a simple focus change). Unnecessary inactive/active packets is
annoying to the receiver, not to mention unfriendly to the network.
