I think this is a scenario where you have an intermediary service
which will be the client to the actual service that the original
client wants to invoke.
IMHO this certainly can be supported with the existing axis2 security module.
Basically when the client send the request to the intermediary service
it can   configure the how the request should be configured
dynamically to invoke the secured service. You can use the
InflowConfiguration and OutflowConfiguration objects to configure [1].

Axis2 comes with the addressing module ... you can configure things
like wsa:To and wsa:Action using the axis2 client API.

BTW your scenarios sound a lot like scenarios that can be supported
using Synapse... so Synapse experts what do u guys think? (CC'ed  the
synapse-dev list as well)
