That was part of the idea behind IPN, originally, at least as I
understood it.  You have essentially two primary types of outages;
scheduled, and unscheduled.  If you knew in advance, you put it on
the IPN pages.  If you didn't know, you generally were in enough
trouble, or enough off the air you couldn't get out to mail other
people saying you were down.  :-)

I'm sure we'd be glad to gateway internex.outages to a mailing list
to keep people informed, if they were so inclined and interested...
