One of the main motives for kernel Dbus for now is "Linux Apps"(it will have many more for sure)... but i definitely don't like the model at all...too much sandboxing you end up sandboxing the user out lol...
To me it would be much better to implement "capabilities" in the style of EROS http://www.eros-os.org/eros.html
..portal or bind only what shouldn't definitely be allowed, but that the FS permissions and ACL already do... so its a duplication... it could have minimal additional usability, but definitely this shouldn't be a "police OS", or it will became so secure that nobody could use it for desktop, specially there, where users make a lot of mistakes and crazy things that should be allowed to do and that don't pose any considerable security risk.
The masses are ignorant of this tech wonders... they aren't as savvy or seasoned developers as you gentlemen.
