Event Notifications System

A recent post on sounds got me thinking ...
Does it make sense to have a events notification system, possibly based
on DBUS? For example, each time a window is minimised or closed xfwm4
could publish an appropriate event notification. A sound daemon would
then subscribe for those events and play a sound accordingly. Similarly,
xffm could publish an event everytime a mime-associated file is opened.
Xfdesktop could subscribe to it and use the notifications to build a
"Recent File" menu. xfdesktop could also use a "workspace changed" event
to display a different backdrop for each workspace.
A generic events system would be easily adaptable to many situations ...
Does this make sense?
