Yes. Why? Because it's an example of how the XML effect should emerge
while the XML disappears.
What's the business model of Yellow Pages? Subject pays, information
re-use is restricted (because you wouldn't carry the publisher's
adverts) but viewing is free.
If we had a web service, where anyone could register it in the UDDI
cloud, the subjects wouldn't have to pay (well, it'll probably become as
easy as publishing a home page),the info could be re-used, and anyone
could provide their own UI and/or further categorisation.
Let the fun begin!
