The experts can tell you more, but it basically cleans up legacy notations.
One caution.  I have several large notebooks which I have run this on.  Many
crash the Mathematica kernel, which is no biggy - just save and go again.  However,
a couple have crashed the kernel, Mathematica, and hung the computer!  Appears to be
a bug which is some sort of conflict between the Notations package and the
FrontEnd which has not be resolved.
