Nice idea. This pipeline should generate a cleaned up database file
for you:

curl -s http://www.dns-sd.org/ServiceTypes.html | 
     tr '\r' '\n' | 
     awk '/^<b>(.*)<\/b>/{sub(/<b>/, "");sub(/<\/b> */, " : ");print}'

AWK rulez.

You could probably extend this command line so that it generates a python
dictionary from the data. Than, make this to a makefile target so that one
can easily update the database later on.
