You mean like the p2p "services" which are such a large percentage of bulk traffic?
Or the udp media stream "service" I provide for video chats with Gabriel's nana
and uncles?  I personally think of them as applications, but if you want to see
them as service, fine by me.

Uniqueness is a mighty handy property, as anyone trying to implement ICE
to get SIP working across NATs will gladly tell you.
