Cross-wiki notifications in no-JavaScript version of Special:Notifications
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Users without JavaScript, cannot currently see cross-wiki notifications in [[special:notifications]], and cannot access the flyout/popup.
They currently have to go to each wiki they've edited/visited, to find out where the notifications are coming from.
This should be fixed, as part of T115316: Better organisation of the Notification Page

The specific problem here is that no-JS users see a badge that says "1" (or some other nonzero number), but when they click it it takes them to the special page, they see no unread/new notifications, and no indication that the notifications they came for are on another wiki (or which wiki they can be found on).
