Totally makes sense. Something like a blinking shield vs a blinking (numbered for prioritizing?) Jolly Rodger vs a Blinking Sword, with a "Call to Arms" type sound for defending, a "Doomsday Laugh" for ganking, and maybe a "Chaaarge!" for a pushing ping as well.
Can't have too many, as that would get confusing, but having a primary/secondary gank target, a pushing notification, and a defending notification, I would be totally okay with.
something like (control, shift, or alt) + (1,2,3,4) + (left click minimap/hero) would be awesome, not too clunky, and help teamwork a lot.
Perhaps could isolate this functionality to just an "elected team captain", if people felt it was too obnoxious for all players to have.
