The order of vieweing Alerts caused a false alarm - if Alerts are viewed in a source wiki, then they will never appear in a cross-wiki notifications.

Recording outcome of in-person conversation: it turns out that this does work, but auto-mark-as-read makes it difficult to see it work. Because mentions are alerts, they are marked as read as soon as you view them on the originating wiki. That means that, if you are mentioned on wiki A, then as soon as you open the alerts popup on wiki A, the mention is marked as read. It then won't appear as a cross-wiki notification on wiki B, because it's not unread. If you first view it on wiki B, it does work, because foreign notifications are not automatically marked as read.

Thankfully, we plan to kill auto-mark-as-read in the near future.
