I am just a newcomer when it concerns Telepathy and I am not totally
sure about the way everything fits together, so bear with me if it is
unrelated to Xavier comment, or is covered by an other existing use

My special use case would be using Totem, enjoying a movie, and a
plugin that would get IM messages to its fullscreen window, possibly
just like a news ticker.  Then I would notice important messages,
pause the video, un-fullscreen it, click on the blinking empathy icon
and answer.

Does it make sense ?
