From some people, maybe.  For my money "notability" is shorthand for
having achieved sufficient external recognition and discussion that we
can verify that the subject is covered neutrally and accurately.  

OK, perhaps also subjects which are so trivial that they are of no
conceivable interest to people who do not already know all about them.
