Right, the proposed media player interface is this one IIRC:

I think I once contacted on of the assoicated developers, because they have 
spread one D-Bus interface over more than one object, e.g. according to their 
spec each of the three D-Bus objects only implements part of the interface, 
which is basically a violation of the idea of an interface :-/
