+                                <listitem><para>If specfied, a custom kdbus
+                                endpoint will be created and installed as the
+                                default bus node for the service. Such a custom
+                                endpoint can hold an own set of policy rules
+                                that are enforced on top of the bus-wide ones.
+                                The custom endpoint is named after the service
+                                it was created for, and its node will be
+                                bind-mounted over the default bus node
+                                location, so the service can only access the
+                                bus through its own endpoint. Note that custom
+                                bus endpoints default to a 'deny all' policy.
+                                Hence, if at least one
+                                <varname>BusPolicy=</varname> directive is
+                                given, you have to make sure to add explicit
+                                rules for everything the service should be able
+                                to do.</para>
+                                <para>The value of this directive is comprised
+                                of two parts; the bus name, and a verb to
+                                specify to granted access, which is one of
+                                <option>see</option>,
+                                <option>talk</option> or
+                                <option>own</option>.
+                                <option>talk</option> implies
+                                <option>see</option>, and <option>own</option>
+                                implies both <option>talk</option> and
+                                <option>see</option>.
+                                If multiple access levels are specified for the
+                                same bus name, the most powerful one takes
+                                effect.
