in may opinion it is more horrible that you think you can decide what other
people should do and what not. if the user want such functionality there should
be such a functionality. i know the HIG for the "new" notification area and it
is good for notificate the user. so way not make a new panel applet for
notification and the old one is for "traying". problem solved. ALL people are
happy (not only the HIG guys).
