Within the Space notifications options (right-click on a space, select Notifications...), I'd like the additional ability to prevent the notifications from that group from updating the notification counter (i.e. the blue comic book bubble).
The reason I generally silence notifications from a space is that I don't want to be bothered by high-traffic spaces that I only occassionally monitor. Having it still show up in the counter is distracting, as the only way to clear it is to go into the space. It also causes a context switch as I have to figure out which space is causing the counter to update.
