What do you mean you "system status"? Is it the status bar?

yes, the Options dialog has too many options already; this new option
is, in principle, an API thing, a property to be added in
http://www.openoffice.org/api/docs/common/ref/com/sun/star/text/ViewSettings.html

It can of course be added to the Options dialog.

What would you suggest here? Other help balloon?

This is already assigned to an action (from the help balloon when mouse
over the status bar control):

"The current page number is displayed in this field of the status bar.
A double-click opens the Navigator, with which you can navigate in the
document. A right-click shows all bookmarks in the document. Click
a bookmark to position the text cursor at the bookmark location."
