I just skimmed the api. Here are my comments.  I'd like them discussed and have these issues tracked and resolved before moving to FPWD.

some of the use cases:

 A calendar application alerts the user for an upcoming meeting, and allows the user to easily specify a "snooze" delay of several possible time periods.
 An application with multiple simultaneous execution contexts (like a multi-tab email application) wants to show notifications without creating duplicate notifications.

Are not possible today with system notifications, but they can be implemented using a callback.

I propose that we punt on these.

Web APIs should not throw.

We should not use sync APIs EVER. permissionLevel should take a callback.  The implementation of this API probably will hit a database/datastore and we shouldn't block waiting for stuff like this.

privilegedFeatures should not be exposed.  Instead, we should add a new permission value: const long  UNKNOWN.

I think we should, as I stated before, make sure that the Web Notification spec is something that we'd implement.

I think this is basically out of the scope of our charter as I read it and it is something I think Mozilla will *not* implement.
