Merging chat and notify messages will present some problems. But these
are problems that should be addressed anyway. A chat message has a
connection (i.e., user) associated with it. A notify message may have a
tile (and therefore city) associated with it. But we should have a
player associated with a notify message as well (PR#6563). The final
design should have a clean way of associating various different types of
data, which can be entered cleanly through the event interface and
displayed prettily by the client.

Whatever other rules we have, no "critical" event from the current turn
should be lost.
