Looking at the patches, I see people chose different conventions for id
and path. For example, the Shell uses the id, and
gnome-system-monitor uses org.gnome.gnome-system-monitor. This in turns
can lead to different paths: your patches use /org/gnome/gnome-shell
and /org/gnome/gnome-system-monitor. But this isn't consistent with the
id for the Shell (same problem with gnome-power-manager).

Can we choose one of these conventions? Then, I think id and path should
have the same form when there's no reason to make it different.

(Personally, I think /org/gnome/shell is better
than /org/gnome/gnome-shell because gnome- is redundant.)
