So if I understand this right, even if I managed to somehow get
notify-send and/or kdialog --passivepopup to use xfce4-notifyd, I would
still end up with the hardcoded timeout of 5 seconds because that's
hardcoded in libnotify?

xfce4-notifyd is frontend? And not the backend causing this hardcoded

Are there any receivers I could use as replacement for libnotify?
