Currently no. However, (AFAIK) the 2006 OS release will allow you to 
install packages with root privileges.

Are you talking about server or client side SDP functionality? Enabling 
sdpd on the current SW releases requires root, but creating new local 
service records or performing client side operations should be possible
without root. (btw, the 2006 OS release will have sdpd running by 
default so that problem will be solved there).
