Name or Names in service files? (Disconnect between the spec and our implementation)

While it is not actually spelled out by the spec there is an example in
the spec which would not actually work with our current implementation:

Figure 7. Example service description file

            # Sample service description file
            [D-BUS Service]

In our code we look for Name not Names and we do not parse that entry
but simply assign it to the structure (i.e. entry->name = name).  So
which is correct?  The implementation or the spec example?  Since it is
just an example I would say it is a typo in the spec.  Alp wants to know
because he is now implementing this part but is happy to go either way.
