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.
