It's a board configuration option. By default, notifications older than 30 days are automatically deleted if they are read.

This is done for performance reasons; the more data that's in the table the slower the queries are going to be for everyone. We are going to want some sort of cleanup process being done for most boards I think, however we don't have benchmark data to tell us what the speed differences are going to be at what total number of notifications. If someone would like to try and do some benchmarks of query times at varying levels of the number of total notifications on the board that would help us make a better decision as to if we can make the default cleanup period longer (and then of course it is up to administrators to choose for their own boards).

I believe this is a good way of going about it...

The design that you've proposed can be implemented in your own style with no difficulty as the unread count is available as a separate variable.
