How about returning an "array" of "string"s in the method call? Both
are valid DBus types and you could probably concatenate the various
properties using a delimiter and tokenize them at the receiver end.

I'm no dbus expert and have mostly used QtDbus to communicate with
existing services, like NetworkManager etc, so CMIIW! :)
