 Just having something listed from fd.o does not make it a standard, sorry. 
The Galago spec is used only by its own libnotification, nothing else. KDE 
does not use it - it's a wheel reinvented to be quite different in principle 
from KDE's KNotify and also from what I remember the Galago developers 
weren't even open to incorporate changes to make it at least possible to map 
it to how KNotify works.
