It is a requirement of some applications that sources be vetted. Yes. It 
is not a requirement of some other applications. And it has nothing to 
do with RPC versus REST versus ....

Web services is not a monolithic thing. If I want to find the URL for 
the SOAP interface for Edgar (if there were such a thing) I would use 
Google, not UDDI, if only for usability reasons. I guarantee that 
clicking this link will give you more useful information than spending a 
day in a UDDI repository:

  * http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=EDGAR+SOAP

I can also see circumstances where I would want a vetted source, perhaps 
looked up by a machine at runtime. I would not use Google for that but 
neither would I use UDDI.
