CXF supports WADL and we plan to enhance the WADL support for it to be
applied to the server side development.

No, it does not. However, WADL is superior to WSDL 2.0 RESTful
descriptions, IMHO. If you do prefer WSDL-first for developing SOAP
services and thus also want to use the same document for generating
the RESTful annotations then applying CXF JAX-RS user models can
easily compensate for the fact we do not do WSDL 2.0
