That may be allowed to happen. I know QtDBus does allow for that, but 
apparently Java doesn't.

But it's still the same object. The object can choose to add or remove 
interfaces to itself. But you can't add them from outside it. So, in 
QtDBus, you need to know the QObject that is registered at a given path 
and then add new interfaces (QDBusAbstractAdaptor-derived classes) to it.
