> Generally speaking we tend to leave UI up to browsers and avoid speccing it. However given that notifications is all about UI I think doing so effectively makes the feature untrustable for authors. We don't need to define exact pixels etc, but I think we need to define some semantics in the form of expected behavior of UI.

I just wanted to pop in and say I agree with this effort. It is exploring new territory, and it's going to be a bit tricky. E.g. can you even write tests for this kind of thing? How specific is this kind of UI-speccing to today's UI patterns, versus those of five years from now? But the overriding point about this being necessary to give authors something worthwhile is very strong.
