You missed option (d):  The functionality was implemented by one (non-UI) guy as 
a test for an alpha release, no one's thought much about it since, and now that 
this thread has reminded people of it it might get turned off for Fx3.

For what it's worth, I haven't thought of a sane UI for notifying the user of 
"ping" yet.  But then again, I'm not a UI designer by trade.
