notification panel sizing requires providers to specify fixed size content
The sizing of the notification panels only works correctly if the provider content defines a "notif" element with a fixed width and height. We adjust the panel to whatever fixed size they specify. Ideally we should control the size of the popup and allow the providers to implement a more flexible layout scheme - ie, we have a better idea of that the "best" size for the popup should be and the layout of the provider content should adjust accordingly. They can still implement a fixed size if they choose, but they may end up with scroll-bars. Or they can be even more flexible and avoid scrollbars while still not dictating the popup size.
I would prefer we use document.body.firstChild rather than a named element, but in any case, this needs documentation in the api doc. Is there any other todo for ms1 here?
Using something like bug 476039 might be a workable alternative.
Is this something we're trying to tackle for 17?
