Thanks for the detailed response!
Yes, a unique name is really good, and I thought about creating common resources apart from a service config and then use some id, like arn or name in service config, but in this case, it could be tough to detect from which modules application depends on. Also, it is difficult for me, at least right now, to accept the fact that the application config won't work until a few other configs are applied, moreover, if the order of appllying is important, it probably will worth to store that information somewhere
Thanks for terragrunt too, I'll try everything that reduces routine with terraform :)
