Trust is a learned behavior where you 
say "nice doggie" until you find a 
rock. Who do ya love?

Then there is that Taste thing.  Any 
system that flattens out based on standards 
is eventually in the same position as 
classical music.  To quote a pamplet on the 
subject, "Lincoln freed the slaves but 
Jazz freed the musicians." 

The UDDI communities and models are just 
another way to automate Keiretsu yellow 
pages ++.  The ++ is in the rules of 
engagement and the tModel. 

Invoking the topic behavioral reinforcement 
we discussed earlier this year, the usual 
models of tit for tat trading rules apply 
which is why the phrase (may have originated 
at PARC) "The rule of rationality is weak 
for organizing human behavior" is quoted.
Who do ya love?
We get Operator Sites, tModels 
that assume a URL pointing or citing a 
specification is a binding contract, etc.   
The medallion of trust is the URL, but 
really, who do ya love?

Again, style counts.  This system can produce  
what the jazz musicians call "sweet bands" 
and it isn't a complement (think Kay Kyzer  
fronting Lawrence Welk).  Becoming 
Le Jazz Hot requires more than adhering to a 
public specification.   On the other hand, 
some bodies of work (see previous citations) 
are too hard to understand and so languish 
until a future emerges needy and ready to 
implement.   The trick is to cross the chasm. 
A lot of good trumpet players starved until 
Louis passed his apprenticeship.  

The T-Model owner got one choice of color.  
The Caddy owner got Chrome.  Style!!  Who 
do ya love?

... and a generic version attribute. :-)

The point I was making is that global repositories are
only really good for local communities, because, as you so
eloquently noted, at the end of the day, trust is what
will bind relationships, not registry entires (or at least,
not until trust is bound into the discovery process).

Of course, this is one of many steps in the evolution of
the enterprise....
