Passing file descriptors over DBUS

In order to make the X server more flexible in handling configuration changes 
one of the ideas so far is to use DBUS (either via the session bus, or via a 
P2P connection) to tell the X server about it's configuration. For that to 
work in a secure way, one of the requirements is to have the ability to pass 
an open file descriptor across DBUS. (See man 7 unix, SCM_RIGHTS)

What are my chances of getting such functionality adopted in DBUS?
