Personally I'm not using neither gui file browser nor consolekit session and make use of the group based permission because I know how to handle things, and I can look up eventual barriers in my way quickly and reliably enough.

This is the first time I hear that this way of treating things would be discouraged, and I'm asking myself if this is just a sysadmin's gripe and if it will be possible in the future. Let's say I'm pretty sure it will be possible, since I guess I'm not the only one who avoids these additional sources of errors aka. software layers like ck/dbus/stuff. I left $certain-other-distro for some reason, and don't want to be forced back on this layer cake again.
Exactly the same here.
If and when Arch leaves no option but to use the kit family (or being faced with hours of uninstall & reconfigure tedium) it will have lost all appeal and there's nothing that would make me prefer it over anything else.
