this is not new to plasma, of course. i have some funny and embarassing 
stories of my own around this exact issues from kde3 days involving some 
*ahem* "cute" comments made by a girl friend of mine over IM while my laptop 
was connected to a projector in the front of a large conference audience. 

as a result, there's now a class in kdelibs called KNotificationRestrictions 
and apps really ought to be using it.

i also ought to revisit the KNotification and org.freedesktop.PowerManagement 
integration (or lack thereof :) aspects of it as well .. it hasn't seen any 
love since 4.0 :(
