I am happy to see such initiative. I think RDF and OWL is gaining
momentum now in the web service arena.
I would go a little further in your initiative by developing a ontology
for the UDDI concepts such as Tmodel, Bindings,..
ebXML seems also to take this path. By doing so, it would be possible to
perform semantic mapping of both registry model and be able to query
seamlessly both registries and avoid implementing multiple specialized
API for each registry. A common RDF model will certainly favor
interoperability across different registry models.

This feels like it would be something useful, and even more so if  it 
were possible to search on the RDF statements.
