"unknown", as I said two years ago, we did not "remove support": Notify OSD never implemented the parameter in the first place. And it is also incorrect -- and, as I suspect you know, extremely silly -- to say that the design takes away your freedom: you have the freedom to use mate-notification-daemon instead, to apply Ankur's patch, or to write your own. You don't have any of those freedoms with the notification systems on Windows, OS X, or iOS, none of which let app developers customize notification durations either.
