Hm, I thought I'd filed a bug with a service file for this too, in fact
we're shipping it in Poky.

I think the original rationale for the design is that DBus activation
isn't how gnome-keyring should be started: it should be started in the
session.  Being able to find the daemon via DBus is for when the
environment variables are not present for some reason.  I'm not
convinced this is a good argument and would like to see it started via
DBus activation, if only so that it is started on demand instead of
always on startup.
