I don't. I think it's an abuse of the current system.

In any event, if this is implemented at all, it needs to be added as a new 
feature, under a new flag, for D-Bus 1.2.x. Common messages today cannot 
have any extra timeout.

I think that's a cost that's worth it. The alternative is to wait for 
D-Bus 1.2.0.

If you have not written the code and tested it, do not make this claim.

Cannot say. Maybe not, since every message already has a timer -- the 
timeout one.
