Who you gonna believe? :-) There's a dispatcher in Lift and it checks for user-supplied snippets before dispatching to the hard-coded snippet names.
You can override the built-in names and there are a bunch of different snippet dispatch mechanisms (by convention, by partial function, hard-coded) This does not change the fact the the <lift:xxx/> tag is encountered and the body of the tag is dispatched someplace for processing.
