Thank you for your answers.
Concerning this last point, let's see my own case.
I have a class that is not a bean (but not far from). I know how to
serialize it and how to deserialize it. So I know what the WSDL should look
like (not very different from the generated wsdl for a bean).
I think we should have another option in the wsdd 
<typeMapping .... serializer="classname" deserializeFactory="classname"
wsdlGenerator="classname" >

Most often, I think custom serialization just consists to choose what needs
to be serialized and to serialize it using existing serializers.
