I don't think the term "multiple-inheritance interfaces" makes sense. Objects can inherit, but how can an interface inherit anything? Perhaps a better term would be "nested interfaces": these could be defined as interfaces that, besides their own methods, include all the methods of other interfaces. Java doesn't support multiple-inheritance objects, so I doubt that OOo does. I'll put "nested interface" into the section on interfaces to see how it looks.

Also, I've called the single interface of a new-style service a composite interface. --Cking 20:17, 6 October 2008 (CEST)

At least in UNO (and also in Java, and, equating abstract classes with interfaces, also in C++), interfaces can inherit from (multiple) other interfaces. “Multiple inheritance” is an established term for this. Consequently, I undid most of your recent modifications.--Sb 15:43, 7 October 2008 (CEST)

Thanks for looking at it. I've had a hard time understanding interfaces. I'll post to the mailing list first, next time.--Cking 23:01, 7 October 2008 (CEST)
