I have now updated the dbus-daemon man page to explain the two new
options briefly (and while I was at it even added docuemntation for
two other new switches which were previously forgotten). However, I have
not documented the internal semantics of the service activation since
that is an implementation detail between dbus and systemd, and as such
is sufficiently documented by the code comments I added.

Also note that systemd's daemon(7) man page explains how to hook up
arbitrary D-Bus services with systemd.
