Of course, your fusion reactor is unlikely to claim the org.kde.plamsa service 
name or implement an interface org.kde.plasma, but leaving this aside...

There doesn't appear to be a way (with Qt's D-Bus module) to ask for "all the 
services that implement the org.kde.NotificationAreaItem interface".  You can, 
however, ask for all the services with a particular name, and you can 
reasonably efficiently keep track of the appearance and disappearance of the 
services whose names follow a particular pattern (the MPRIS spec uses this - 
all players implementing the MPRIS interface must do so at, 
where foo is some name unique to the player instance).
