   One semantic addition to UDDI that I can think of (but I don't yet see
   how to really make it work) would be to provide the ability to describe
   the semantics of the associations that are created by adding categories
   to a service. 

   In a bit more detail: 
   I have a taxonomy of things registered in UDDI, and I have a service.
   I register my service, adding a category from my taxonomy to the service
   (to its category bag).
   This creates an association between my service, and a category of my
   But what association is that? Is it an ISA link? Is it "is instance of"?
   "Is it "is provider of"?
   It would be nice to know.

I pick "is provider of," or just "provides."
