Site-wide mentions for @all and @group

Sometimes while writing a post, I realize this is something a lot of people on the site should be aware of. Either everyone subscribed to the group in posting in, or to everyone on the site. Yet, I never use the site-wide private message, firstly because that's a secondary action I usually can't be bothered to do, and secondly because I don't always want everyone's attention, but rather only those interested in the topic at hand.
What if you set aside some usernames like @all and @group for simple site-wide mention notifications? @all would be everyone on the site. @group would be everyone in the group you are posting in. Possibly there could also be a way of addressing specific groups, e.g. "Everyone in this @group and @troubleshooting please take notice..." though that could in rare cases cause conflicts with usernames.
Just a thought. Might be plugin territory I guess.
