Wow, awesome overview! Thank you for taking the time to explain it.
I've always wondered how it was supposed to fit together.

What is "it"? What works with GNOME desktop, which you expect does not?
I use GNOME on GuixSD. For what it's worth, after I've logged into my
GNOME session, if I open up a GNOME Terminal, run "dbus-monitor", and
then launch Evince (from the application search menu), I do see a flurry
of activity related to Evince, so I think it's connecting to the session
bus (dbus-monitor monitors the session bus by default, apparently).
Regarding the lack of a "back" button in Evince, I do see one, and it
does seem to work. The button looks like a "<" symbol.
