I thought (but may be wrong) that DBus was able to start helper applications in response to queries rather than requiring the helpers to be already running as daemons.

Indeed it can. But, it is probably more responsive by starting it and leaving it running as a daemon. Especially since this is a core dependency of GNOME 3.2, one would assume that (in the future) many applications will be making use of it.

Still, I thought the original commenter was suggesting no helper application at all, but instead a shared library. Correct me if I'm wrong, though.
