I think he'd be OK with some variant of this. He might not want two implementations, one using NSPopover on 10.7+ and another for 10.6. I don't know how he'd feel about notification balloons only being implemented on 10.7+.
Although I'm not sure how important notification balloons are in the grand scheme of things, anyway. I guess users will let us know if they miss them (unless somebody is inspired to take on that particular corner of unimplemented functionality beforehand).
