Why not? This sounds like a nice and clean design. Splitting a set of 
rather closely related interfaces across two services seems less 
coherent in comparison (two services to talk to, with possible overlap 
of functionality and implementation). I'm just curious - I know 
absolutely nothing about the problem.

BTW, while we are at power management, are there any chance of pushing a 
fix for the bug 7999? The patch in the bug report fixes (or masks?) the 
crash (I tested it on Ubuntu 11.10). The bug is rather disturbing (it 
breaks power management in XFCE) and the timing couldn't be worse - I 
imagine there are now many people trying Xfce because of the mess in 
other DEs.
