If you want to do that then you have to support a model of allowing the
user to get an anonymous operation client without having to give that a
special name that we came up with. That is, it doesn't make sense to
make the ANON_* stuff part of user's world- just allow then for the user
to pass null as the name and assume that means ANON_whatever (the
corresponding anonymous operation). 

That way you make the simple case simple without introducing new
knowledge the user must learn.

Is there really a meaningful usecase for someone to create an operation
client yet not have a real service (via  WSDL or an AxisService)?
