...comp.. is typically used for the implementation name of an implementation object implementing
a service. It is possible to have multiple implementation for one and the same service. For
many services we have only one impl but for others (e.g. typical service provider interfaces
like a smart tag extension) we have or can have more. 
The implementation used the last registered impl for a service when it founds more than one.
But it is possible to use the impl name as well to instantiate exactly the implementation
you want. Well that is an internal detail only and is used sometimes. But it could theoretically
be changed at any time.

Ok enough for now, when you interested to learn more about the details feel free to ask.
