The Notification led like it is in the Chinese version would well be enough. The location and the holder for the notification led is there, only the 5 cent led is missing (and the option from the Setup menu).
At minimum, a reasonable explanation why the 5 cent led is missing could make many user feel better.
Here the location and the holder for the notification led is seen at T=4:25: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0M3Budnl3aI the holder is the black T form plastic part at the top, close to the left corner, it has three holes, the two upper holes are the proximity/lightness sensors, the lower hole is for the missing notification led.
In that video is used a chinese version of nokia6 so the notification led is there in the holder.
