This is a key part - so concretely, we don't plan to patch dbus-glib
to always emit this.  If someone wanted to make a patch for dbus-glib
(or other bindings) which added an optional flag to do so, we might
consider that, but honestly I think this kind of time is better spent
porting things to gdbus.

So I think this spec update makes sense.
