Hi all,

It seems I got pretty late to this discussion because of vacation time...
However I'd like to throw my 2 cents:

Cornelius, the draft looks really great from my POV.

This is absolutely necessary. Since there is no interconnection between
desktop, say desktop A and desktop B are both developing a technology which
is for the same purpose. It makes sense that they will have the same service
name in the DBus namespace. You have created a conflict, because A would use
org.freedesktop.Technology and desktop B would use
org.freedesktop.Technology, with the services not even matching.
