... which would make running the CEC hook *before* running the notifiers
the easiest thing. Hacking in "did-CEC-handle-it" logic in the rest of
the chain is just going to be painful so the best would be IMO: if the
CEC decided to consume it, it won't even go down the notifiers.

Just like the added crap^W value firmware-first thing does and we should
learn from it. :-)
