hype isn't so important. the fact that there are a growing number of services 
using DBUS, some of which are pretty important (e.g. HAL), is important. 

convincing everyone using DBUS to move to something else is a highly remote 
possibility, so DBUS is going to be around. if we do decide to support DBUS + 
<something else>, we already have the <something else> without changing a lot 
of code.

what would be the real world applications of this benefit?
