The only thing I've seen in this discussion that I disagree with is the

somewhat obscure environment variables. That should be rather be explicit,
I think, and we want to limit the extent to which applications are allowed
to do that (run in the background).

Yeah, I agree with this. As discussed with Ryan and others on IRC yesterday:

I think the way forward here is to introduce a seperate ExecService= (or
maybe ExecBusService= or so) field here, and for .desktop files without
DBusActivatabe= set prorgams should just contiue forking off the
binaries directly.
