This does not make sense to me - there is no harm in having a single 
org.bluez.ServiceAgent name with all the service agents owning it. hcid 
will still have to talk to the agents using the unique name - the 
well-known name is used only to identify which connections are service 
agents, so the bus can apply the right policies.

peer-to-peer may make sense for other reasons, but I don't think 
avoiding having a well-known name like this is one of them. The 
well-known name isn't changing any existing semantics you might have.
