 Because there's no "some DBUS stuff"? Can you see KWrite, OOo, Mozilla or 
Gedit using DBUS? They all however use X because for running in X they 
already depend on it anyway. Since the XSETTINGS API is "get setting X" and 
"setting X changed", who cares what's beneath it as long as it's something 
reasonable and it works?
