#15412: Tab title doesn't always revert to black on open

 When I have a new message waiting for me in a tab, the tab title turns
 blue. When I open that tab and view the contents, the title switches back
 to black. I love that. The simple and intuitive visualization is obvious
 without being obtrusive. What I don't get is why that can't be implemented
 for 'user is typing' and 'user has stopped typing'. Respectively, these
 states change the title color to yellow and green. However, if I click the
 tab, thereby acknowledging the change in state, the title remains yellow
 or green! Only if the other user submits his message (turning the title
 blue) does the system allow me to revert the message title to black. This
 wouldn't be a significant problem if all messages ever started were also
 submitted within a reasonable time-frame. However, in my less than ideal
 world users often start typing something, think better of it, and end up
 responding hours later (if at all). This leaves me with a green/yellow
 warning title that constantly catches my eye and triggers a curious 'hey,
 did I get a new message?' response without actually providing new info.

 In short; please revert the message title to black after I open a window
 in which a user is typing/has stopped typing.
