is that currently CXF core is very much WSDL-centric. I did some hacks to make the core APIs
are not bonded to WSDL directly, for example, the Endpoint, EndpointInfo, AbstractServiceFactoryBean,
AbstractEndpointFactory, Binding etc, the intension is that they just represent a generic
service so that I can extend them with a non-WSDL based programming model. But I am not very
happy with what I've got so far. IMO, I don't think we should map JSR311 model (a REST model
or a resource-oriented model) to an internal WSDL model, actually it is impossible to do so
I believe.

Hiya Jervis,
I'm looking forward to hearing more about what you've done and your 
thoughts on how to move forward. Glad you're thinking about this as well.
