Hi,

It seems that if the fetch for the icon fails, the notification just  
vanishes. This doesn't seem to match the best effort idea, nor the value  
of having a notification even if the icon is broken. Why not allow user  
agents to set a timeout, but require them to still queue the notification  
for showing?

cheers
