In Channel Preferences, there's a field "Enable recipient list below for channel entry notification?" But AFAIK that's for when a new entry is published. How about for when an existing entry's Status is changed?

Yes. Take a look at the add on MX Notify Control which should allow you to do this.

Alternatively, for even more flexibility take a look at Postmaster

MX Notify Control worked, thanks! One thing to note is when updating a Status to trigger the email, one has to save by "Submit" and not "Save Revision" or the email won't send. – jphansen May 16 '14 at 20:41

Audit Pro also does a pretty good job of letting you set granular notifications.
