Personally I'd prefer it if the logic in evolution-alarm-notify was cleaned up into a library (I started this, see https://github.com/rossburton/libealarm, but it needs a lot of work) and then the GNOME Shell handle the notifications itself. Currently the notifications are pretty ugly and don't fit in with GNOME 3 at all, which is a shame. e-a-n should probably remain as an example and for people who want Evolution 3 but not GNOME 3, but ideally won't be used.
