I remember one of the outcomes of the discussion we had
at Gran Canaria Desktop Summit was that a spec didn't have to be fully
finalized to be allowed to use the org.freedesktop DBus namespace.

Do we all agree StatusNotifiers bring a significant improvement over the
old x-embed method? I think this is what should really matters.
