I considered the schema part more important than the ports, methodnames 
etc. But maybe these need to be considered as crucial for a web service 
as its input and output types, in which case you have a point.

My idea of a next-to-perfect way of developing web services is that a 
compiler of a statically typed language imports a schema (=contract), 
uses it to typecheck a program, and then as an extra generates the WSDL 
from descriptors. The schema would not change (and the thread seems to 
explore use cases where schemas can change). But then, such a compiler 
could also import the schema from the WSDL.
