If you mean a text terminal, tooltips don't currently work there on the
mode-line.  I only committed a change (to the trunk) to get them to work in the
text area after 22.1 was released.  Extending them to the mode-line should be a
routine but time consuming task.

I think this would take up too much space and push more important information
out of view.
