I would welcome similar feature too. Sometimes one ping just vanish, but
second one and more will come their way correctly. I don't wish to be
alarmed down on the beach for just one lost packet and I imagine
something like this:

    if failed icmp type echo with timeout 15 for 3 cycles then alert

This is probably syntactically not clean to the current config scheme,
but it states the idea, I hope. In case this can be accomplished by some
other trick in monit configuration, it's great, but I don't know it. :-)
