I've yet to hear a compelling argument that these new states are 
actually necessary and beneficial to the user. While notification of 
typing is a slight violation of privacy, I certainly don't want people 
know when their window is active/inactive or when I've closed it. 
Really I think it would just end up making some people feel bad, and I 
don't think there's a clear benefit to it.
