NetworkManager "connected" message is "masked" by other notifications

Bug Description

When NetworkManager informs the user that he is connected (wireless in my case), the notification doesn't appear until all the other notifications disappear.

Example: While NM is connecting, GMail Notifier informs me that I have mail. At the same time, the computer is connected to the network, but I am not informed of this until the mail notification fades.

I think this is a problem related to the fact that there are two types of indicator; the volume/screen brightness, etc indicator that appears at the top of the screen; and everything else which appears below this. The problem is that there is only single instance of each of these types of indicator allowed to be active at any one time. I believe it would be a lot better if the indicators were allowed to stack themselves so that more than two indicators may be visible at any one time.
