The current situation with notification area is a little chaotic. While I don’t want to discuss the behaviour I would like to see the icons placed in the area to have a specific visual style as illustrated on this mockup.

I suggest the icons look different to regular application launchers or applets since they behave differently and their primary purpose is to inform. Having simplistic, greyscale icons would work quite well I would say.
