FYI, now that you mentioned it I discovered in my F15 it does not
auto-start either (XFCE)...

I think there was an autostart file for it not so long ago, I remember seeing it on my F15 machine. But I can't seem to find it on both my f16 and f15 machines, which is strange.
I don't remember what provided that file... I can't seem to find it in thee notification-daemon package git, so it's probably not there.
Anyway, you should add notification-daemon.desktop to the autostart directory, but make sure that it only starts when needed (ie. when not using gnome-shell).

I think there was even a thread about it in this list, which said that every desktop should take care of loading the notification-daemon on it's own.
