We've had discussions about this in the past, and the consensus we arrived
at was that we should not remove functionality from the API
to accommodate the limitations of a single platform. For example, the
notification system on some flavors of Linux do not support clicking on
notifications, and yet we continue to support adding onclick handlers to
the notifications.

Please also review previous discussions on the list re: accessibility and
icons, as I think they apply in this case as well (the value of providing
an icon in the API even though not all platforms may support it).
