stikonas added a comment.

  In fact API documentation says explicitely that
  > IMPORTANT: if the organization domain is set, the .desktop file that describes your application should have an entry like X-DBUS-ServiceName=reversed_domain.kmyapp For instance kwrite passes "http://www.kate-editor.org" as the homePageAddress so it needs X-DBUS-ServiceName=org.kate-editor.kwrite in its kwrite.desktop file.
  So if I understand correctly current documentation is not consistent, one thing contradicts another. I'm not sure if it is good to keep inconsistent behaviour till KF6... Well, it would be nice to hear if anybody else have any ideas?
