Ok, that's enough.  I forgot why I started this thing about XSL. My main
concern was about to put HTML inside notifications, that would enforce a
specific presentation ruled by the client application which is very bad
for all the reason discussed here.

If the notification spec has only the basic markup written here[1], the
implementation can do a good transformation if it wants to. That's the
final goal of what I was saying about XML/XSL.  The idea produced a lot
of noise, a lot of things were misundertood (like changing dbus or
adding themes to the spec!!)

For future changes on the spec, adding other tags like size or position,
or adding an "HTML" hint will just throw away any possible
post-transformation. Please don't do it
