Required spec changes for D-Bus 1.0

I'd like to collect a list of necessary changes to the spec to be 
implemented around the 1.0 release of the D-Bus library. I imagine most 
of these changes will be just consolidation of what is already practice 
in the reference implementation, so they can come after the 1.0 release.

The point is: what does an independent D-Bus implementation require to 
interoperate that is not already in the spec?

I've already got a few items:
1) Describing ALL the possible address formats, including their options. 
This includes "autolaunch:".

2) Describing how to find the machine UUID. If it's about reading a file, 
then the file path must be in the spec.

3) Describing what the default session and system bus addresses are. Yes, 
this includes hardcoding the path to the system bus into the spec, or 
then describing where to find it.
