org.freedesktop.Notifications ... *sigh* sorry, but that's not acceptable.

calling these "Notifications" is incorrect and will block future use of that 
name for a proper notification spec. it was a mistake for whoever decided it 
was a good idea to grab an org.freedesktop prefix in the first place without 
first establishing it as a accepted and used system, and i 
don't think we need to reward that behavior at the cost of the platform.

i see various other things that are sticking with the current spec, and while 
i find some of them dubious i don't think they are worth squabbling over. the 
name of the service on the bus, however, is.
