Not sure about any doc on this :(

But basically it works as Havoc suggested:

. each app was meant to implement a top_application method (though in
practice none does, but it doesn't really matter)
. the desktop file references both an Exec (for legacy) and a X-Service,
which is the service it register
. wherever an app is launched (application menu, mime-handling library
...), if the .desktop file has this X-Service, the method is called (via
osso_rpc_run). If not it falls back to Exec.
. the app registers the service it declares on startup, and exit if the
name is already owned.
