As I can see it there are a couple of advantages.
* In the future it would be nice to see it used more widely. Depending
on the free desktop message bus would definitely make this easier.
* The CORBA-version has always had a problem with not dying together
with the session (still doesn't) which means you have problems if you
login from several locations (for example in a thin client setup).
* In the future a lot of cruft from GConf can be removed. Like the
entire scheme that the daemon needs to keep track of which clients are
listening to which keys. This is now handled from the client that gets
a reliable signal from the message bus when the GConf service gets
connected and disconnect and thus can reconnect itself. This cleans up
the internals a lot.
