I think DBUS is not restricted at all as far as I know, Bernd wrote the
following some days ago:

/This comment was about one specific DBus API (PackageKit), which will be
made unavailable to 3rd party applications soon to prevent unrequested
sideloading of RPM packages. An API designed for use by 3rd party
applications for this task will be made available.

DBus APIs generally are available to you if you have the right to acces
them from your application without raising the applications
privileges. PackageKit (hopefully) is the one big exception there at the
moment. We're trying to create additional documentation on stability of
DBus APIs to help you to avoid using an API which will still change a lot./
