I don't think it's that bad, but that might just be me having different
use patterns (for instance a common complain is that the message tray
interferes with the active area of maximized terminals/xchat windows - I
hardly ever maximize those windows, and didn't do so either in GNOME 2).
I'm sure that a solution which addresses your issues without
compromising on the design goals will be adopted in a heartbeat - feel
free to get in contact with the gnome designers to provide constructive
feedback (and no, you don't have to be "creative" to do that - that's
their job after all ;-)

Of course the implementation detail of which DBus protocol applications
use to interact with the tray (Notify or NotifierIcon) is completely
irrelevant for those UI problems - if it sucks for you now, implementing
status notifiers in the message tray would suck just as badly.
