   I thought I would help and google the heck out of it -- but I have not had 
any luck. I been through the kde 2.0 api, kde 3.5 api, etc.. and I haven't 
been able to find a specific reference to when Unique is allow, honored, etc.. 
The whole search has been rather frustrating in that there isn't a single 
collection of information that seems to address what service types are allowed 
when. The most information in one place I could find was at:

   See, in general, (bottom of page) There are a bizillion 
posts of list the entry as part of a .desktop file, but nothing on point. You 
may see something I missed in the api, but it looks like you are down to 
grepping headers and code.
