If you have some input on awesomeness of dbus which I miss I am all
ears but so far nobody could point out any advantage to me when this
topic came to the table.

Sure, dbus likely includes a protocol for passing around the messages
but I am sure there are already dozens of protocols for serializing
data into datagrams and/or pipes (which is what all communication
boils down to in the end), and if the one dbus uses is in some way
awesome and standing out from the crowd then the authors and
proponents of dbus fail miserably at explaining that.
