Answer:
If Incident was submitted as Service Request (or vice versa) it should be re-routed right at the beginning i.e. before further activities take place. This means that, usually Service Desk staff or technician who took over the ticket, should change Incident into Service Request (or vice versa) and "send" it to the right process.
