Once it reaches 1.0? No. At that point we commit to ABI/API stability.
In practice it can but really it is all implementation details that are
not all that important (other than needing to be documented and stable).
If it becomes important it can be worked into a D-Bus 2.0 release but in
my opinion it is more important to have a stable platform to develop
