I think that will be fine even if it takes lots of time.  Since it also
waits until resources are loaded before displaying the notification, the
display event and the actual display will essentially coincide.  I should
probably clarify that by loading resources I mean loading the URL supplied
to createHTMLNotification or the URL supplied for the icon to
createNotification.  If the HTML requires sub-resources, those could be
loaded after the display.
