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:
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.
