over the whole cgroups system, requiring anything that runs on the same
kernel instance to beg it via dbus to perform required actions.

I have heard this said before, would like to have some official confirmation if this is actually the case or not. cgroups are currently hierarchical, I would have thought this would mean, at least in theory, different programs could be responsible for different parts of the hierarchy.

If it is true, it is the thing we need to be prepared for, and so far I haven't seen any official information.
