Yep, in several ways.

If you have a UPnP or Jini WSDL binding, then it's exactly the same  
as for SOAP or HTTP bindings.

You could also extend the grouding to go directly to the, e.g., UPnP.  
This was done as part of Fujitsu's task computing project:
	<http://taskcomputing.org/>

There is code support for those groundings in the Mindswap OWL-S API:
	<http://owl-s.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/src/org/mindswap/owls/ 
grounding/>
	<http://owl-s.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/src/impl/owls/grounding/>

If you dig around, you might find some example grounding files.

(e.g., I found one by googling:
	<http://lists.mindswap.org/pipermail/owl-s/2005-May/000298.html>)

(Note that there's also a grounding to direct java calls.)

See:
	<http://www.daml.org/services/owl-s/1.1/overview/#6>

The OWL-S API should handle this fine. It did so for the  
TaskComputing project...you could discover, match, compose, and  
execute services with complete indifference to whether they were  
soapy or upnpy.

Cheers,
Bijan.
