I imagine the storage part can still go trough Ceilometer?

I think it would be interesting to compile your need in term of
potential notifications format evolution. The current format is very
(and too?) free, and I imagine it could be a pain to handle the large
amount of different notifications sent. It is already painful for
Ceilometer, and I'm pretty sure it'll for such thing too.
