FWIW, this is probably the section of the HIG I'd most like to see in
reasonable shape before we release the next version, so proposed
guidelines are welcome as bug reports or (if you're brave) on the
usability list.

There's already a bug open about notification icons (don't have the
number to hand), but IIRC it's quite long already, so a separate one for
notification balloons might be appropriate.
