I don't think we'll want to default "lights" and "vibration" to false.
And I still have concerns that exposing "vibration" as a boolean could
mean that a notification goes completely silent, even though neither
the user or the application intended for that.

Also, how is "disrupting" intended to work? As I understand it, the
current spec already defines that if you create a notification using a
tag of an already-existing notification, that it just updates that
notification without otherwise notifying the user.

So how are you envisioning that disrupting would alter that behavior?
