I don't agree to that (I assume you're mistaken about .server instead 
of .service).

It's quite important that the system and the session activation files be 
separate. I'd much rather they were placed in a different directory, but 
I'll settle for a different extension or a special key in the .service 

The reason for that is that we do NOT want session programs being 
activated on the system bus by accident.

It's very easy for applications that are activated in both to install two 
files, if necessary.
