That is not specific to the notification area so I don't think it's a point.

Right now this KMail composer window isn't maximised and I have no idea where 
my mouse pointer is (hidden while typing). If I scroll, I don't know whether 
it'll scroll this document, the Kontact mail list below or the IRC window on 
the next screen.

Besides, this applies to maximised windows too: I still have the IRC window on 
the screen to the right. In your example, I could be scrolling on that 
konsole. Or if it happened to fall on empty Plasma space, it would go to 
another desktop.
