What about renaming this to DbusBrokerAsTheDefaultDbusImplementation?

"Enable" correctly describes the technical operation (systemctl invocation),
but it isn't obvious just from the title that this is about replacing
normal dbus daemon.

I'm not sure if this is the correct way to do this. People might want
to install systems with just normal dbus (e.g. in containers or minimal
installations). It'd be better to update comps [1] to pull in dbus-broker
instead of dbus into @Standard.

[Based on our preeliminary discussions]
This replaces the system wide bus and user busses.
What about the at-spi2 private dbus instance? Would dbus-broker be fast
enough to change gdm to use the user bus? Do you have plans to replace
this last use too?

If dbus-broker becomes the default like described in the Change page,
what other dependencies on dbus will remain?

Since this is already testable [2], what about asking for testing on
devel-announce@ and test-announce@ ? This is a pretty big change, and
I don't we can make the decision to use this by default without
widespread testing.
