Actually, this is EXACTLY the right use of the Configurer.   Good catch.   
It's specifically there so the container can provide configuration to the 
various beans used throughout CXF.

Our normal config mechanism is spring based.   Thus, that's the implementation 
that is used most often.   I don't know if your JBoss integration stuff 
exposes any of the spring config to the JBoss/CXF users.  If so, you may need 
to keep the Spring configurer and "wrapper" it with yours. :
Configurer orig = bus.getExtension(Configurer.class)
bus.setExtension(new ServiceRefStubPropertyConfigurer(serviceRef, orig),

and have it call the wrapped configurer as well.

I'd double check that.  Instead of "adding", you MAY be able to just replace 
as I think the default of configureBean(Object beanInstance) is to call a 
getName on the instance and then call the other method.

Sounds perfect!
