Whoops, I forgot to mention this also:

I would like to add a new ENABLE(LEGACY_NOTIFICATION_DEPRECATION) flag which allows ports to deprecate the legacy API. This saves us from the hazards of refactoring the code to use a different ENABLE flag for the legacy API, and allows ports to opt-in when they're ready. Does this sound good?

Also, I have patches for review, but will not commit them until we have reasonable agreement in the WG. The overall intent is to leave the current API alone, and to implement the API using Notification() rather than WebKitNotification().
