Google could only spider UDDI if Google corp. specifically wrote a 
spider for UDDI. This is because UDDI uses a namespace that is distinct 
from the Web's and an information retrieval and update protocol that is 
different from the Web's. Similarly, UDDI could only build a linkage to 
Google if they specifically coded support for Google's proprietary API 
(i.e. namespace+access protocol). That's what interoperability looks 
like in today's web services space.
