According to the web site 
<http://www.peppolinfrastructure.com/architectureconferencev12009> :


    * Registry Architecture
          o Hierarchy of registries
          o UDDI with a RESTful interface


Naturally, I am a little confused since I was expecting ebXML RegRep as 
the registry standard. AFAIK, UDDI does not provide a RESTFul interface 
but ebXML RegRep 4 does.

I assume there is a mistake somewhere. Perhaps the web site meant to say 
ebXML RegRep and accidentally said UDDI. Or perhaps, you meant to post 
this message to the uddi-dev list and accidentally posted to ebxml-dev list.

Can you please clarify this issue. Also is there any detailed 
description of the hierarchical registry aspects of the architecture 
somewhere that you can point me to.

Thanks again.
