Dynamic delay system.

I was listing to my a feed this afternoon and while I was just getting pulled into an exchange the scanner moved on. By definition. How many times has this happened to you?
The system I monitor is large enough to be busy enough that it will take a while to get back to it.
So what I want is a feature where by the radio listens for rapid conversational key ups. The longer they go on, once a threshold is reached, the scanner will add 250 milliseconds (programmable) to the programmed delay. If the conversation goes longer than a 2nd threshold another 250 milliseconds is inserted. and so on.
It would be nice to be able to program 3 layers.
On a per channel basis.

The idea is that the radio stays on the action channel for as as long as there is "action" there. Once it stops, the radio moves on. Since this is dynamic and unpredictable inserting a dynamic delay function may be the answer.
Channels which are busy can easily be excluded.
This would be a great feature for streaming scanners.
I just think is would make for more pleasant listening generally and especially for people who use the feeds.

Is there a radio that does this already?
Could they put this feature into a 996?
