I never liked using the built-in corporate directory to search for extensions. I guess in a small organization, it's ok, but in a large one, where people have extensions they don't want published, it makes it a bit more difficult. Plus, in larger organizations, there are many entities that have the same phone number. Labelling restrictions in CallManager also don't make things ideal to work with.
You can consider a small LDAP enabled directory to hold this information.

Developing something myself is not out of the question, but I always hate dealing with the support issues, (IE, if your on vacation, who's going to fix it)
Have an off the shelf solution is very desirable for me and management.
Right now our datasouce is CUCM, but since I'm looking at adding *Lots* of entries, Building a new directory from scratch isn't that big of a deal.

What is the source? If it is an LDAP compatible directory, you can write something fairly easily (from what I hear) for both the phones (using the software development kit, and the web using standard LDAP libraries.
There are also third party companies that will provide this as well (for the phones at least). They license their software based on phone. You'll have to work out the economies of scale for what price point is it cheaper to build yourself rather than license.
