Hmm, true. You might be able to emulate the functionality by using
prop=info on the user's talk page (and perhaps storing the last time the
user visited the page in a cookie).
(Ps. It strikes me that the simplest and most efficient way to implement
cross-wiki user talk notifications would be as a MediaWiki extension.
Why do we not have one already?)
