Therein lies an issue. You *have* know know of the existence of that
app, whereas Pidgin didn't require it.

Nah, it's a deliberate choice of the empathy developers. They already
notify the user by setting the right hint on the window. It's just that
the desktop is broken in this very specific case: the notification
doesn't appear if you don't have a window list.

wnck-urgency-monitor is just a quick workaround for this.

To give a more detailed rationale: empathy developers don't want to have
a blinking window in the window list and something in the notification
area, because it'd be spammy. They try to be nice :-)

(and it's indeed not just an issue with empathy, but with all apps using
this hint; that's why it's more some desktop-wide brokenness)
