But when it falls back to a button the name "inline-reply" makes less sense and
now your app has to popup it's own dialogue

Overall I like this approach though

Not sure what your saying here?

I imagined something more like

│ ☐ Messages            × │
│ John Smith              │
│   Hello                 │
││ Reply...              ││
│    Mute    │   Remind   │

But of course implementations would be free to do whatever they feel like,
including nothing
