I think we need to be very explicit that the string *must* be treated as plain text. So if I pass in "&gt;<b>foo</b>" as the body parameter to createNotification(), the resulting notification must display the string "&gt;<b>foo</b>", without stripping or converting any of the substrings that might look like HTML entities.

I definitely like the direction this is heading. If we tighten the
language up I would be all for supporting this in firefox. It still
needs to pass through our usual security review and all that, but I
suspect we can make something work.
