Another one: what happens when there are two providers of service with same name?

Looking at the code, and trying to remember the NeXTstep, OPENSTEP and Apple docs for services,

I think that this is not supposed to happen. I guess that service names should be registered with a central coordinating organisation (which was certainly supposed to be the case for file extensions used by apps).

Some services providing apps had many services, and to avoid conflict with service names from other apps, they used the appname/servicename syntax for their services ... this results in a submenu (whose name is appname) of the services menu, with all the services produced by the app being placed in the submenu.
