I have several long-running processes that choose to provide services and
stop providing them dynamically, without disconnecting from the bus.

Theoretically, one process can provide one service for a while, stop
providing it, and have another process start providing it. This would
normally only be possible if the first process disconnects. However, a
process can provide multiple services at once, so disconnecting, even
momentarily, can cause a brief outage.
