Exactly :)

Case in point, I had an overhead power transformer outside my house
explode over the weekend (took out the house next door) -- and my
notebook happily sat there notifying me of every new song Rhythmbox
decided to play.

(Every 2-3 minutes)

Then the Ubuntu update notifier thingy kicked in, and left a
notification dialog on my screen until I explicitly moved the mouse
there and cleared it.

After all that, g-p-m came up and told me my UPS had < 5 minutes left.

I think that means there are other places we can look for "notification
spam" without crippling g-p-m's functionality.
