In Navagation toolbar, can you highlight what mode you are in?

So you can be in one of 3 navigation modes, zoom in, zoom out and pan - you can see this in the API

However, I think it's essential to highlight to the user which mode you are in. If your in "Zoom In" mode there is nothing to indicate that, and I would like something to indicate to the user what will happen when they click.

Is there any property like navToolbar.navType or function like navToolbar.getNavType() I can use to find this out?

I suppose could do something like:
    <div id="navToolbar" >
      <div id="zoomin" onClick="HIGHLIGHT ME; navToolbar.activate(esri.toolbars.Navigation.ZOOM_IN);">Zoom In</div>
      <div id="zoomout" onClick="HIGHLIGHT ME;  navToolbar.activate(esri.toolbars.Navigation.ZOOM_OUT);">Zoom Out</div>
      <div id="deactivate" onClick="UNHIGHLIGHT OTHERS; navToolbar.deactivate()">Deactivate</div>

But would be curious to know for completeness sake.
