A very good idea. It has already been suggested, in fact. :-)

Two properties were suggested, 'tooltip' and 'status'. The first would
provide text clearly associated with the selector subject (_for example_,
in a tooltip or bubble hint), the second would provide text in a dedicated
location (_for example_, in a status line).

A method for doing this has also been suggested.
