Did we say that all activities needed to help other users determine if
it's appropriate to send a message?

XEP-0108 is extensible. People can always define more precise
sub-activities if they want to.

We *could* do that with the video phone activity. It's a bit of a
borderline case, but IMHO it's going to be common enough that we want to
define a separate activity for it.

XEP-0108 is for things that are much more granular than <show>dnd</show>.
