I'm not sure if that's an actual design rule, but it's not necessarily
a bad one. However, I think the reason it works so well for GMail is
that it uses a very quiet notification.
A notification bubble would be equivalent in this context, but I
believe Ubuntu's new notification system would turn that into an alert
box anyway, defeating the purpose. Of course, it's yet to be seen how
broadly that system will penetrate distributions.
