Currently, chat state notifications are notifications about *my* state
(yes, I'm active, composing, gone, etc.). This buzz/ding is a request
for you to be active, so it's a bit of a different idea. Even though I
like the idea of using chat state notifications for this, it doesn't
feel like it quite fits in.
