There was no WSDL produced or consumed in the scenario described (or should
I say elided) above.

However, WSDL does provide a platform independent way in which we can
abstractly describe the behavior of a system and the desired bindings.
Best practices recommendations expressed in such a manner can easily be fed
as input into the various formal standards bodies and informal activities
such as SOAPBuilders.
