It's a de facto standard. People use it, people rely on it, people
expect it to be in place. This is really the other way around: *You*
should explain why dbus is inadequate and *you* should be suggesting

Speaking of which, what are these "dozens of protocols," anyway? Can
you name some of them? Can you suggest why they would be better than
dbus for this task?
