LDAP is, as the name implies, a protocol for accessing all sorts of directories. However, the LDAP directories have traditionally been focused on organizational data such as employee information while the Web Services scheme needs something different. The information published into a UDDI registry does not fit well with the LDAP approach - UDDI contains a different hierarchy of businesses, their services, and technical descriptions of those services.

As far as I know, LDAP can go through a firewall if the admin opens the port used by the LDAP directory server...
BTW. Actually it's not SOAP that can go through the firewall - it's HTTP, which carries the SOAP message.
