It's possible to do this, however, hearing folks speaking at the mike at the
measurements BoF, it may not be the most efficient solution. You probably
want stable, high-bandwidth destinations instead (TTM boxes can be such).

Yes, this indeed sounds attractive. We already have plans for other types of
notifications (like probes being down for some reason). The devil is in the
details though: what are the thresholds for such a service, how easy and
flexible is it to configure, how to filter out the noise so that you don't
get spammed about every change, etc. But we'll surely investigate!

Can yo explain what you'd like to see in such a report, what would be useful
to see?
