IMHO "the way things are done" can not be defined. Users come in many
flavours. Take me as an example: I very seldom check my watchlist any more.
I did, but... things change over time. Moreover, I do not find the
sitenotice disturbing. Actually, it can be there for a couple of days
without me noticing it.

For those who are disturbed by the sitenotice: maybe there is a way of
making it show less, by editing one's css?
