I have investigated this thoroughly and It turns out that this is not as easy as first anticipated. The indicator steals the grab from the gnome settings daemon. So by even trying to grab the media keys from its dbus api it doesn't make a difference because the key event never gets to the daemon. One other approach is to grab the X11 key and release events from the daemon but this by all accounts will break GSD after which I will be in for a plethora of grief :)
