What surprised me was that you started with the well known
reverse-domain-name scheme, and then tottered off into strange territory
by then using dbus.freedesktop.org for anything.

Shouldn't instead the URL scheme be:

  http://<bus name in reverse>/dbus/<interface>/<method>

or maybe just skip the bus name, since it's theoretically uninteresting:

  http://<interface name in reverse>/dbus/<method>

That way ownership is still retained in an interesting way.
