It may be all we're missing here is writing in the spec that 
dbus-1/interfaces in XDG base dirs will contain files named
interfacename.xml; inside each file is that interface only, in the 
introspection format; the files are to be used for generating static 
language bindings for the interface, but for runtime purposes the 
dynamic Introspect() call is preferred. Or something like that, whatever 
the details are.
