I personally think that when my friend is in DND mode then it's his
client's job not to generate any notifications (or generate only
certain notifications, e.g. change trayicon, not some OSD across the
whole screen). You don't need any protocol extension for this, you
could only define some kind of Best Practice XEP or just use common
sense. :)
