I have only one remaining site in froogle / Base and the owner is thinking of getting out of internet sales anyway - the B&M shop itself gets far more trade.
I noticed a while ago G wanted the official EAN/whatever product codes for the items and complained when I didn't supply them, since those codes are irrelevant in this market.
I won't be sorry to lose that froogle account. I'll close all my webmaster accounts at the same time and just wing it, like everyone used to.
I'm really looking forward to the day google stops being high up the UK SE list. They have far too much power and provide too little real traffic hereabouts.
