I'm not sure, but I do know we've stuck to only IMPORTANCE_FOREGROUND and didn't include IMPORTANCE_VISIBLE when starting a normal service.

This could also be an unfortunate race condition, ie right after you check the importance that importance changes... and yes there'd likely be nothing to do about it.

I can't find where I got this code. I'm sure it was from Google though, somewhere in the issue tracker.
Why did Google even make this new function?
