Yes, that is why we hide YaPI or SCR calls in a model. But to know which
services are available (from vendors perspective, aka read the vendor config)
you don't need root, and if you did, then you need root to get the file
content, but there is no need to parse it at the root side.

so either you have

services -----------> dbus/YaPI/SCR -------------> rest-service
vendor.yml -----------> -> YAML.parse -->

or, if the file really needs root permissions, you get

services -----> dbus/YaPI/SCR -------------------------------> rest-service
vendor.yml -----> dbus/YaPI/SCR (read content) -> YAML.parse -->

The configuration reading (and how it affects what the Service model returns
can be hidden in the same YaPI wrapper that simulates an ActiveRecord so for
example it returns results based on the vendor config.
