PCT AG-IP 11.003 Are all applicants required to have the same agent?

11.003.   Are all applicants required to have the same agent?  Each applicant is free to appoint his own agent.  Ordinarily, however, it will be convenient for all of two or more applicants to appoint the same person to represent all of them as their “common agent” (or to appoint a number of common agents – for example, the partners in the firm of patent attorneys or patent agents which acts for the applicant).
