Annotation, new mail, and special flag

I was just wondering about the annotation stuff.

What about if you could mark a folder as "special" via an annotation 
like you can mark or flag a message? Maybe this could be used for 
some subset folder listing, above and beyond folder subscriptions?

This lead to another idea. What about using a folder annotation to 
tell the server what folders you'd like to be notified when there's 
new mail. I know there's the IDLE extension, but that only applies to 
folders that have been selected.

Perhaps all silly nonsense. Just some ideas that I was wondering 
about while munching on my daily apple.
