Title is self explanatory. Would you want the green/red LED to blink when you have an unread/new text message?
I say yes. No reason not to. I hate how it's available for the phone but not text. I text 1000:1 text:phone calls. True story.

It wouldn't be bad. I thought I would miss it, but really I don't. The bigger thing is though, even if they put it in the OS build. The problem is that most WP don't have an LED light on them. I know my Samsung Focus Flash doesn't have one.

The blinking led is one thing I miss about my droid. I found it to be really handy. I can go either way though. After eight months without the led I don't miss it as much as I used to.

As long as I can disable it. Some days that sucker would be on more often than off. Some texts are new related, etc., as well as some emails from my junk account are not pressing. Don't need a blinking light for those. Lock screen works fine.

I voted no, I've been about a year without it now and haven't missed it at all, not even when I first got my arrive. The lock screen works just fine for the purpose, don't understand all the "I need it so I don't have to see if I need to turn on my phone" chances are if you're picking up the phone you're going to turn it on and be on it anyway.

Don't need or want a battery draw. I'd prefer a recurring audio (like on my microwave ;)).
My Playbook has an iteresting "glow" notification option which slightly "lifts" the corner of the screen to an underneath glow. I can have this plus a blinking LED, but I use the glow setting only. I cannot block both, but the glow-only helps conserve battery life, and the glow is on only when the screen is not dimmed of course. The blink is actually useless because I flip the convertible case lid closed when I'm not using the device.

the GIANT 1 on my live tile and the blinking happy face is obvious enough for me to know I have a text. i know some people need a NUKE to go off to notice anything , lol. ;)
LED just an other battery drain, + I regularly check my phone so i don't need a light to tell me I have notifications.

Nokia does something like this with their N9 phones, and this is the Android app I'm using. Hopefully WP7 will get something like this.

eat dinner = they can wait!
i dont jog! but i should , lol but if i did job i would have music playing and the sounds would tell me :)
do you look for a light when you jog/sleep/eat dinner?? if so you might have a PHONE ADDICTION problem. ROLF!
to Check if a light is blinking or look for a live tile update.
Id rather lose 2secs of time looking for the notification then loses 1hour of battery time.
+ My cell is Always in my pocket so it's easy to access it.
