[openbox] Center Windows - Exclude Some?

Hi Everyone,

In Openbox 3.5.2 as well know it will center the first window you open, but
the next one will be off to the side, corner, at least that's my
understanding here.

So I wanted to make it so that all windows will open center on top of each
other, and I added at the bottom of rc.xml this;

  # end of the example
<application class="*" type="normal">
      <position force="yes">


Now the thing is I didn't realize, but I use  xfce4-notifyd for an OSD
popup notifications and if you are familiar with it, it already has it's
own options on where you can display the notifications, top left, top
right, bottom left, bottom right, but with this rc.xml option it's also
causing the notifications to appear in the middle of the screen.

How can I exclude some app(s) from not appearing in the center like this?
