More like a selective "silence sounds" mode, where I only want to be alerted if pre-approved contacts want to contact me (either calls, SMS or social network notifications).

This would dramatically reduce the primary pain of phone spam, the interruptions. I'd be okay if the ignored events just piled up in the notifications menu, as it is only three swipes (plus unlocking) to clear them, and I can always go to my call history if there are any false positives whom I should call back later.

Furthermore, it should be possible (i.e. for a persistent spam number) to set some contacts to always "ignore", or just as effectively set them to a null ringtone. (Custom ringtones per contact would be cool too).

The functionality you described would be great. I am personally looking forward to it as well.
