But don't they follow the same model that of main frames? Centralized point of service (Service Provider) clients (Requesters)
Only new piece is registry. Once you are done with Registry you are back to same model?

Well, web services aren't supposed to be as fine-grained as I believe the mainframe applications typically were (are). There's always going to be some two business partners that want to integrate their systems so you have to provide some kind of a service layer anyway -- web services just standardize the messaging protocol.
