This is by design and will not be changed. The purpose of the Alerting Service is to run actions configured by the user to run executables, run scripts, restart services, reboot servers, send emails, and so on.  Without the privilege of performing these actions, the Alerting Service cannot attempt to recover items that are currently in a failed state and cannot notify you of these failed states.
