Except that people won't know that something happens when you click on
the clock. And you can very well have an applet with just a label which
does nothing when you click on it, so you'd want to differentiate the
clock applet from this.

It's kind of a known issue upstream, but nobody ever sat down to figure
out what policy we want. Would be great to have a volunteer propose
something on the usability mailing list upstream, and then file bugs
against the relevant applets :-)
