Hmm... that could be a thought.  Although...

  1. There are already activities in the list which don't necessarily help
     the other user determine if they can send a message.  e.g. for
     "gaming", if they're playing Solitaire, I'd say they can respond to
     messages.  There are games where they can't.

  2. We already have presence for the other user to determine if I'm
     contactable.  i.e. can I not just set DND while on a video call?
