Video phones may become common enough one day (when Cisco stop thinking the 
privilege is worth paying four times the price of a normal phone, there will 
probably be a boom in them) but if you want other types of phone that are 
already common enough to split into their own sections, I'm sure there are 
plenty.  Talking on a mobile vs. talking on a landline, for instance?  
Talking on a VOIP softphone vs. using a "real" phone?

That's why I will suggest doing both.  Set activity to "on the phone" and 
status to "dnd".  That's more specific than doing either independently, and 
doesn't even require inventing a new type of phone which may not even add any 
useful information to the other user.
