I was thinking more of a human driven system.

Example:

1) The recent email to the announce list would be "sent out" to all
F10 users as a "critical alerting" instructing them accordingly.

2) Something takes down the build system, a "infrastructure alert:
would go out letting everyone know that updates will be dead for x
hours"

3) ...  i think you get the drift
