so let me point out the obvious:

when it came out, there were as many implementations (1) as knotify had at the 
time and fewer apps using it. and there were objections made at that point in 
time, which were ignored, and this continued on in the same manner (objections 
raised, and ignored) until this point when I went ahead and started 
implementing the galago spec in KDE.

what this proves is that you can get your idea through, no matter it's quality 
or providence or acceptance to others who share it, through simple thuggery.

that's not really a system in which i want to participate in and offer my 
support to. do you?
