Not only games, depending of the work I have att hand, I might want to 
supress all but critical notifications, and that shuld (att least 
optional) supress sound notification! Such featurs might be 
implementation dependent, but the spec shuld preferable not make it 

This is actuly a kind of an accesability question. For some attension 
disorder, distraktion is hell!

I realy love the implementation giving me a applet shoving I have 12 
supressed notification that I can check when I'm done with my 'do not 
disturb' jobb!
