It was to prevent a web app from overloading the user with actions from multiple task sources and to put the onus on producing a good user experience on to web developers: where the user is not bombarded with multiple actionable messages in quick succession but instead only requests them on-demand.

Ok, I can see the rationale there. The thing that bothers me is that if you have been granted this capability without a requirement for interaction, then by this spec requests cancel one another when clearly they shouldn't. But I guess we can cross that bridge later.
