 I thought supporting an opinion did not require one to repeat it, but if you 
want: Shutdown/Reboot are basic functionality but power management features 
are an add-on that not everybody may be interested in having (see above for 
my feedback on that part). Since a DBUS interface cannot be split that makes 
the whole org.fd.PM interface optional and therefore Shutdown/Reboot should 
not be part of it.
