Sounds like a plan. But I think scripts of the text form would be a  
bit too involved for a phone. I was thinking that there could be a  
notification agent in the phone which applies rules and can act on them.

So for instance if you receive a text message containing a word you  
could auto-open it or play a sound, display a message. This could  
also be used for ringtones, when a certain person calls, maybe add a  
date/time condition.

It would be along the lines of email rules, except available to  
email, sms and phone calls. It would be a sort of script, but built  
in an easy GUI fashion.
