Right - which effectively means it just vanishes...

That's one approach. Doing that, and going through with the rest of the  
notification is probably a good idea in practice.

I live in a world that supposedly has great networks and all, but I very  
regularly (several times most days) have images fail to load. Since the  
image shouldn't be critical to the notification, it would be helpful just  
to get the rest of it...

Hmm. There's no way to provide a text equivalent to the icon. If it is  
possible to display the notification without the icon, as I think it  
should be, then that becomes a bug. I can raise a seperate thread for that  
if you like...
