I agree.

> ServiceDesc level...also in WSDD)

The "published" attribute that I mentioned will allow you to suppress
browser-based browsing and WSIL listing of individual services.  This will
most likely be an optional parameter in the WSDD entry for each service.

 <service name="PrintService" provider="java:RPC">
  <parameter name="allowedMethods" value="printFromFileToSCPJAsynch"/>
  <parameter name="className"
  <parameter name="published" value="false"/>  

I propose that we also add parameters to the globalConfiguration in the
server-config.wsdd file for controlling the visibility of the publishing

  <parameter name="WSIL.enabled" value="false"/>
  <parameter name="serviceManager.enabled" value="false"/>

Later, as the security components evolve, we could tie this to ACL's for
fine-grained control.

one suggestion: make it easy to turn off.

while this stuff is great for testing, in production i want to make it hard
for people to find what entry points I have, and I dont want GET based
wrappers around SOAP calls.
