I think this should probably be included in the D-Bus daemon itself,
instead of passing it on to the distributions.
When parsing the .service files, the directory (and/or file) mtime
could be stored, and before using the cached values, those mtimes could
be compared to the current ones. That way, reparsing would only be done
as needed, so there would be basically no performance penalty, and the
service configuration would be a lot more transparent.
I am just unsure if that solution would also apply to windows.
If nobody objects, I'll file a bug report / enhancement request.
