One more point: the choice of name seems odd.  The (completely optional)
official recommendation in the spec is "the interface name should
correspond to a D-Bus interface that the application exports...".  This
is an optional recommendation, and there is no need to actually export
that interface, but the fact that this interface exists elsewhere (on
the server side) suggests to me that it might be a particularly poor
choice of name.

org.freedesktop.Notifications.Sender or something?

But ya -- above all else, ask the notifications guys.
