[IPP] named services

I am heavily working with the scan service these days.
So my note comes out of that effort.
But I think this is a rather general question after all.

A service is typically quite a complex object.
A name that identifies a service on the highest level would in many cases ease the management and debugging of functionality that deals with services.
And if I had more than one service in my scan service xml instance I'd prefer one to be the default (services have their own defaults, but a service itself cannot be the default within a services group).

I helped myself by adding a vendor extension (a simple attribute) to the ScanServices and ScanService objects.

I could even imagine to add an ID attribute to a ScanService object and an IDREF attribute to the ScanServices object.
But I can't really do that with vendor extensions.

Just wondering if other people also feel that a named service and a default reference to such a named service might improve the situation.
