Ok, got the remark, will think on this topic a little more.

For now my personal ranking of the ideas is following:

1. Move to (gnu services ...) :: can(?) provide some additional reusability.
2. Keep as it is right now (gnu home-services ...) :: already works.
3. Move to (gnu home services ...) :: good stylistic change, but breaks
backward compatibility.
