Please use transient hint so notifications in Gnome Shell stay out of the way

Bug Description

Using Gnome Shell, notifications from U1 are persistent. They stay behind in the message tray until the user dismisses them. This forces the user to interact with a transient notification for no reason, and the messages are usually outdated a short time after they appear.

Please use the "transient" hint for U1's notifications. This is discussed briefly at at
With the transient hint, the server knows to present notifications only briefly, like notify-osd does by default.
