True but notifications aren't sent until the transaction commits
anyway. At the time when an application receives its self-notifies, it
has already committed the transaction so there is no uncommitted work

No. The policy is also to not see the committed work if for some
reason the transaction had to roll back during commit. In this case
we'd also expect getting no notification from this transaction at all
and this is what is violated here.
