Yes; basically define a set of rules followed to map IDL to stubs. 
For example, OMG has a defined standard for mapping CORBA IDL -> Java:


This ensures not only that other third party tools can generate stubs
that work with Jarapac, but that those stubs can work with our stubs
(or any other third party's stubs).  Also, client applications know
what output files to expect from compiling a given IDL (regardless of
which compiler is used); so any userland apps don't have a dependency
on a specific compiler.
