Bug Description

Currently the specification for indicators has indicators show either a count or a time. The time being generated from the time it was created if one is not provided. This is covered here:

  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MessagingMenu#Treatment%20of%20the%20API

The part where this is awkward is with login indicators. They are short lived and the time isn't really useful. Neither is a count. So it seems that for these indicators nothing should be shown.

What I would propose is that if time is not set, and count is not set, nothing is shown, but the entry is still sorted by the time it is created.
