I would guess so. I thought it was already in the list of deps, as it
was already defined in jhbuild.

GSettings, probably, dbus-glib, I have no idea. I personally don't see
removing dbus-glib usage as something urgent, especially when a large
portion of the code is just dbus interaction (like in libsocialweb, or
in gnome-bluetooth's libraries).

I stopped reading the module reorganisation mails when it got into an
l10n discussion, and I already made my concerns about it known.
At the end of the day, I'm not the libsocialweb maintainer, and I needed
to add it to get the nautilus-sendto in master to build. Feel free to
move the definition around.
