I meant in the message format. You know how difficult this is: the dbus-daemon
must broker the capabilities. If a message is coming from a service containing
an extension, the daemon must check if the receiver can receive it before
When the message is a signal, there may be a big number of receivers to be
tested. Some may receive the message, others won't.
It would be better if the message format allowed unknown types, which the
library would just ignore or skip.
