See the Apache Axis WSIF project paper
You can dynamically parse the WSDL file and access a web service dynamically
(with no generation of dynamic Java classes etc).  You can imagine a single
piece of code acting as the guts of a client that can access any web service
described by WSDL.  (It's not a reality yet, but there's a significant part
of it working.)  A client program can be directed to a WSDL file which is
very similar to the one published by the owner of the Web service in
question, but has changes.  This is actually useful in development when the
original wsdl file is broken, or uses constructs that the consuming software
cannot grok, and you can work around the difficulties, but clearly it can be
used maliciously as well.
