Most people here seem to prefer the backward-compatible approach, this
does not allow changing the dbus name. The only solution to this is to
create a new dbus spec and have existing notification daemons implement
both in a transition time. I do not see this happening...

While I agree the dbus name is not completly accurate, it is just an
internal name, not something users will face. Therefore I do not think
it justifies recreating a whole new one which would be better named.
