That's what I wanted to know, thanks.

So, in case of org.freedesktop.DBus "/" would return a child node like this
<node name="org/freedesktop/DBus"/>

Or is /org an introspectable objects by itself?

The idea I came up with was to support a method like this in

ARRAY of STRING ListObjects ()


ARRAY of STRING TopLevelObjects ()
