AIUI WSDL 2.0 will be able to describe services which work in this way, and more. 
Is it the *more* that is your concern ?

	A Unix pipe can be used for transport or transfer.  In this case it's
	used for transfer, as there's no operation in what is exchanged (i.e.
	it's state), nor more importantly, any expectation that anything
	occur beyond simply processing the data.

	Sure, schemas and content encodings have to match up.  Unix pipes
	aren't particularly self-descriptive.  Had they been, the shell would
	be able to detect the mismatch and possibly re-route the data flow to
	correct it.
