"As bonus I personally and other users have experienced that clicking away
a banner made the banner appear again within the hour visiting other pages.
I had that at least four times on a project, on several projects.
Re-appeasring after being clicked away is useless and disturbing."

I'm not sure what happened here; a banner should not reappear after you
click hide (at least not until two weeks have elapsed).

"Also it is annoying that I need to click the same banners away on each
project I visit, many users visit Wikipedia, but also work on Commons,
Wikidata, etc."

Bug 16821 addresses this issue. I have submitted a patch [2] today that
will enable this. I am coordinating with Greg G; but will probably deploy
the patch (and another one that will make CentralNotice use mobile URLs on
the mobile site) tomorrow in the Lighting Deploy window at 1600 PST.
