I don't think that we want to impose the requirement that UAs have to close
all notifications when the user closes the webpage that opened them. Or
that UAs have to do that in order to not have "dangling" notifications.

It seems like a reasonable UI to leave notifications opened once the user
has granted explicit permission for a website to create notifications, as
is the case any time they use the notifications API.
