When looking through the system-services folder on my machine, I realized that one file had a comment in there following this regexp "^#.*$". However, this is not documented in the dbus specification.
Please tell me if this is correct use of D-Bus service specification files so I can provide a patch to the specification.
This kind of thing is all inherited from the desktop entry spec:
I don't think we should cut-and-paste the whole desktop entry spec or even the syntax part of it into the dbus spec. Somehow we should incorporate it by reference and explain which parts of it apply and do not apply, or something.

Proposed patch (v1)
This patch updates the location of the desktop entry specification and adds a small list of parts that apply to service files as well...
When you say "These sections from the specification" it might be clearer to say "These sections from the desktop entry specification"
Looks like a nice improvement.
Fixed in git for 1.4.8 (I didn't apply the change to the desktop entry spec URL, since someone else has already changed it, to a different URL which also works).
