It is not possible to check arguments of an incoming D-Bus signal. The
signal is just put into the event queue. Arguments are inspected when
the event is handled by the respective handler, which is much too late
for the idle-time reset.

I have played with the other woraround option, reusing the notification
window. The following code snippet, based on your initial example, shall
give you an idea:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(require 'notifications)
(defvar msg-id nil)
(defvar counter 0)
(defun my-test ()
  (setq counter (1+ counter)
        msg-id (apply 'notifications-notify
                  :title (format "%d" (or msg-id 0)) :body (format "%d" counter)
                  :timeout 0
                  (if msg-id
                      `(:replaces-id ,msg-id)
                    '(:on-close (lambda (&rest ignore) (setq msg-id nil))))))
  (message (format "idle: %d" (if (current-idle-time)
                                  (cadr (current-idle-time))
(run-with-timer 5 5 'my-test)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Best regards, Michael.
