I see.

No you're not mistaken.

(Just for the record, this statement came from emacswiki, not from the
list...  it's hard to keep on eye on emacswiki for such statements!)

I have implemented this tea-time functionality in latest Org.  Now you
can call `org-timer-set-timer' from Org buffers with `C-c C-x ;' and
from Org Agendas with `;'.  You will be prompted for a number of minutes
and you will get a notification about the current headline after this
number of minutes.  You can set up to three timers.  Please test.

Thanks for insisting on this!
