Thank you for the quick correction. I did find this problem when trying to
generate interface binding code by gdbus-codegen from gio. It generates
functions with a period character in their names which are certainly not
valid c function names.

Properties are not member names, so the restrictions you mention do not
apply. See the DBus Specification:
"Strictly speaking, D-Bus property names are not required to follow the
same naming restrictions as member names, but D-Bus property names that
would not be valid member names (in particular, GObject-style
dash-separated property names) can cause interoperability problems and
should be avoided. "
Since the oFono DBus API is currently frozen, there are no plans on
"fixing" this particular property.
