DBus for LSB

For the next LSB release (LSB 5.0) the LSB work group would like to 
include DBus in the LSB. For this to heppen we need to figure out what 
interfaces and commands should be included in the LSB. The target 
version for inclusion would be DBus 1.4

Taking a look at openSUSE 11.4 I found 333 interfaces marked as GLOBAL 
in the library. But I didn't find any documentation of the interfaces on 
the DBus site. I was probably looking the the wrong place, thus if 
someone can point me in the right direction, that would be great. Also, 
should all the 333 interfaces be in the LSB, and if not what would be 
the best candidates for LSB inclusion?

On the DBus site I found the following commands documented:

dbus-daemon, dbus-send, dbus-monitor, dbus-launch, and dbus-uuidgen

on openSUSE the dbus-launch command does not exist. Is this also common 
on other distributions?
