I noticed the idle time display on the info panel above the message window being gone in TabSRMM v3. I thought this was a pretty neat feature, so I'm wondering whether there's any intention in bringing it back. Or maybe there are good reasons it is gone?

Yes, there are good reasons:

1) not supported by all protocols and most messengers do not use it anyway..
2) unreliable, in many cases showing people as idle when they weren't
