Interesting idea.

org.gnome.Rhythmbox.Shell.loadURI will play the song if you specify
'true' for the second parameter.  It'll also add the song to the library
if it's not already there, so I'd prefer there to be a dbus equivalent
of rb_shell_player_play_entry as well.  If you want anything else added
to the dbus interface, please don't hesitate to ask.  In general it's
best to open bugs in bugzilla for this sort of thing, as mailing list
discussions tend to be forgotten.
