Given that the UDDI reference implementation is Free Software,
see , I'm not sure that
we even need an alternative to it.  I'm not sure that UDDI will
take off in the first place (who would want to use it, and
why?), and it if starts getting popular, what prevents us from
using the existing free UDDI implementation to create an
alternive, free-software-only registry?
