In our attempt to stamp out all Yes / No / Piss Off alerts, perhaps it
would be better if the first app that required it added the Notification
Area as you said, since that's what most users probably want.  

Then if you subsequently removed it from your panel manually, it could
set some flag in GConf to let other apps know not to try adding it
again.  Adding the Notification Area again manually (assuming you can do
so) would clear the flag again, and so on ad infinitum...
