You can do this between Java-based JAX-WS services and non Java clients using MTOM. This allows one to send binary content (e.g. a GIF image) that would normally be base64 encoded in an XML document as a binary attachment.
See here  to enable MTOM in JAX-WS. Of course your non java clients (e.g. MS WCF clients) will need to support MTOM.
An alternative is to use Fast Infoset[1,2], however at the moment there are no non-Java-based Web services stacks that support Fast Infoset. So Fast Infoset is less interoperable than MTOM.
Stay tuned for non-Java implementations of Fast Infoset and it's use in non-Java Web services.
I would be interesting in hearing more about your requirements on the communication of binary data in Web services.
