What we have implemented now is some basic notifications generated and
consumed in the shell, so we haven't added any public API for now.

The interfaces in that spec look quite good, although perhaps would
benefit from a simpler, alternative API that also abstracts the D-Bus
stuff. Perhaps rainbow should do some rate limiting or permissions
checking, not sure.
