I agree with everything you've said.
Actually, notify-sequence-number is what should be used by the client to
ignore duplicates. For each subscription that matches its
Get-Notifications (usually only 1 subscription), it needs to know that
subscription ID and the last notify-sequence-number it received. That
requires very little work on the part of the client.

I can foresee some problems with this - the event timestamp is only
accurate to a second, and I can see many high-speed printers
generating more than 1 event per second!
Also, this increases the overhead on the server considerably.
