If there are multiple applications of the same type (e.g. several web browsers), the

can't be determined, only one of said applications must satisfy the requirements.
Note: Determining primary applications
The usual way to determine a primary/default application is to look into system
configuration where default applications are set (e.g. gnome-control-center -> Default
Applications), or to launch the default application on an appropriate file type (e.g.
double click on an .odt file in a file browser), or to look into a favorites menu section
(e.g. KDE menu -> Favorites).
I like it. This seems like a reasonable way to address their concerns.
Another approach could be to have the maintaining SIG provide their
preferred default and in cases where none is provided, at least one
has to work. So maybe, e.g. Llama Spin doesn't care *which* web
browser works, but Alpaca Spin says Firefox has to work even if
another browser is functional.
This essentially lets us go with the original proposal as a default
case instead of having to go through and figure it out (because it may
change from release-to-release, so it has to be verified every cycle)
