Warning of possible Fees Due for Extension of Time

I know it is the practitioner's responsibility, but when filing a response to an office action, or missing parts, or other official notice with a shortened statutory period for response, it would be helpful to have a warning that extension of time fees might be due. Nothing to prevent the submission without such payment, but some visually apparent text that notes that the current response may have a particular fee for extension of time due as a reminder to the practitioner to select and pay the fee (if appropriate and desired given the situation).
