Personally, this is a good idea. This happens to me a lot as well.
Well if its a sound notification then you would need to set it so you hear it while a video for example.
It all has its pros n contras however u want the notifications. People will abuse it when they feel like it and you turn off the sound then and boom u back to not getting notified. I advise stuff like skype irc discord for true people u want to get notified from. If its truly important they wait anyways.
Dont get me wrong i like this idea. I just cant think of a way to make it work properly currently without contra arguments.
Except: small window blinks up like on irc for example (maybe ive missed that suggestion if so i apologize)
(This way u get notified and even if people abuse it, its a small window only and stays constantly for seconds anyways until it gets closed itself and wont reopen on no response from your side (just incase u get hard spammed n ignore it))
