Hrm, okay (I'm assuming we're talking about a status system, in
opposition of a notification system).

Well, a status item is a thing that displays the status of an
application. I didn't read the spec carefully, but the intro states:
"This specification defines the management of visual items, usually
icons used for reporting the status of an application to the user or
provide a quick access to common actions performed by that application."
It's certainly not just about an item that "notifies".
Les gens heureux ne sont pas pressés.
