What Mark describes there is is possible with notify-osd right now. Ted I don't think it's too much to ask of a application developer to watch one notification. It's easy to implement. Have a look at the attached screencast were I simulate Mark's music-player example with a simple python script feeding notify-osd (but that could very well be done from rhythmbox/banshee/etc). You "see a user" skipping 4 tracks at 2 second intervals, then "listening" for 7 seconds (thus the first notification lives for 13 seconds), skipping 4 more tracks, "listening" again for 7 seconds (so second bubble also lives for 13 seconds) and finally skipping 2 more tracks (third bubble lives for 7 seconds).
