I agree with these for sure. I'm having issues with positioning
because I use the top-right of my screen a lot and I keep having
notifications "flashing" because I'm using my mouse in the area of the
notification. Bottom-right would work a lot better for me I think.

Ditto. For as much as I've complained (even though I've always
attempted to be constructive about it) about notify-osd over the last
couple months, Jaunty ended up pretty well. I think there is a lot
more to be done, and maybe some things to rethink, but I appreciate
Canonical's work on opening this project up more to the community and
hope they can do even more for Karmic.
