1. The presence of 'direction' each attribute (title, body) is nice to see, but it would be good if there were also a "lang" attribute for each. Content language is used to influence the display of Notifications (line wrapping, font selection, etc.). The language attribute should be a String containing a BCP 47 language tag.
