JAXB itself does provide SOME level of this by being able to turn off 
generation of code for a particular namespace, but that's for an entire 
namespace which may be much coarser grained than you want, and certainly 
doesn't cover the cases of the  JAX-WS definted things like the exceptions.   

For the JAX-WS things, it wouldn't be too hard to implement.   If you want to 
submit a patch, the place to look would be in
likely the parseOutputName method where we map the names into a Writer.  You 
could have it check a map of reg-ex patterns or something to see if it should 
skip it and just return null if so.    The trick is to get that map of 
patterns.    I think command line switch like:
would be easiest to implement.  For JAXB, the would be updated 
to just return some sort of "NullOutputStream" or something for the filtered 
classes to have them not written out.

Anyway, a patch would be great.  :-)
