The bus doesn't actually know anything about services' objects. When you 
‘register’ an object in your application, you're just telling your D-Bus 
client library about it, not the bus. D-Bus introspection is just 
another interface, so when you're introspect App1 you are querying it 

Why don't you want to do that? :)
