I'd be interested in the features that can't be implemented in userspace
(and therefore would justify existence of kdbus in the kernel). Could you
please point me to such list / documentation?

It seems to me that most of the highlight features from the cover letter
can be "easily" (for certain definition of that word, of course)
implemented in userspace (vmsplice(), sending fd through unix socket, user
namespaces, UUID management, etc).

Thanks,
