I'd like to generate more example mockups covering the devices frame edge (easy), and the buddy frame edge (more complicated, though we could use this edge just for arrival/departure/buddy-event, but it might be possible to have it cover 'bubble chat' as per Eben's previous hopes):

Arrrgh, nooo. I wasn't suggesting both! ;-)

Yes I think keeping the notification close to its actual context is pretty critical.

Here's a mockup:
I guess a deployment that thinks this an important way to view a consolidated list of notifications could include such a device icon in their distro (much like the cpu load happy/sad face), but for me it looses the spacial context with the object that is actual trying to notify you of some event.

I'm still thinking on that one... Chat type notifications from friends would seem like the ideal case for a consolidated, time ordered list of chat messages (not mixed in with other notification types), so you could actually have a valid conversation flow with collaborating buddies. If new messages were shown attached to the given buddy icon context, you'd be hard pressed to follow the sequence of a conversation (that UI would only really work for one on one private conversation flow).

>>> After further, more detailed, work the frame corner notification history palette idea is not coming together so well. I've switched to mockups that actually badge the existing icons in the frame, and add the notification messages to the end of their existing pop-up palettes. It holds truer (I think) to the original HIG and previous mockups of Eben's intent for notifications. I'll try and get the set of new images uploaded to the wiki later this week for folks to review.
