I don't see the conflict here. For any user of the Web service the generated
interface does exactly that: hides the original implementation.

If the point made by the article is that Web services interfaces should be
defined first and implementations should follow, this is evidently not
possible in all those cases where Web services are used as wrappers for
legacy implementations.
