It's simple, such intrusive default changes should probably not be made
on upgrades without asking.

The very worst thing however is, that there is no simple user setting to
enable the everyday mainstream way again. All would be ok if window
buttons could be moved by the user in the same way pannel buttons can
be moved (by right-clicking), but they are not.

Second that.
Unresponsive dumb notifications go against giving options in
context, that is where your awareness is.
