This "minimum" line to be considered not AFK would varied from PvE bout to bout and varied between normal and elite modes as well.
if you do consider this, please be careful about it, one of my alts is a pacifist VA and doesn't kill or damage. Depending on the team the healing contributed is widely varied and her contributions are largely non-quantifiable (for example tanking Armek like she is made of diamond)

The easiest thing to do imo is to add personal console click checkpoints to make sure people are active as healing and even damage output can be automated
