Notification Plugin: No natifications from Network Manager (NM-Applet)

Although the notifications plugin (Xfce4-notifyd v4.14.) properly logs my system's notifications from pulseaudio (volume changes, mute/unmute), and thunderbird's incoming emails, the network manager's notifications (connect, disconnect etc.) only appear in the notification-popup. They are are not being logged by the notifications plugin. Is this a known issue, or a new observation/bug?

Thanks for looking into this.

Have a read through this old closed bug report for an explanation

Thanks for the link. Yes, I read this old bureport and understand the underlying reasoning. However, today's networking world has "evolved" quite a bit since then, esp. in the often congested wifi scenario. For example, i find it very helpful to be able to backtrack on NM-applet's notifications when a long download fails, or a complex wifi-print job doesn't complete. Obviously, as you can see from the screenshot below...Notifications-4-14.png
the requested logging of "all" apps doesn't really mean "all" apps, right? So in pursuit of "user friendliness", would it help if I revived that old bugreport, and request a mod?

And while we're at this topic, perhaps I should respectfully mention that the pulse-audio app is not listed among the applications, but faithfully logs  every change in volume (useless imo) in addition to any mute/unmute (very useful)?

Feel free to create a new bug report to see what the developer thinks.
