Thanks! It was interesting; it's a not-hugely-well-documented slice of  
period life that we don't always have much a venue to visit, so I was  
grateful for the chance.

As far as I know, not generally. I suppose if the sauce is fairly  
thin, there's enough of it, and the little card falls down or  
something, it's an easy mistake to make. Another possibility is that  
the group didn't provide us with too many serving utensils; either  
they don't have too many or they forgot to bring them; it's possible  
someone took one of the 8 or 12-ounce ladles from one of the soup pots  
to serve with, and people drew the wrong conclusion. Luckily the honey  
mustard was served in small cups... ;-)
