It might be more worthwhile to put downtime status updates on
status.wikimedia.org as a logical page to display the status of the servers,
and link to it from the default error messages.
Given that status.wm.org is an external service, it would hopefully not be
affected by any outages and the Watchmouse service probably should have the
functionality to host informational messages like this and explanations for
outages (like appstatus.google.com does) even if only after the fact when
the ops team has time to write down what is happening.
