unconventional use of ASM AAM and SAM

Can different types of SAM AAM and ASM be used in roles other than their designed one ?

E.g
http://armamentresearch.com/kh-29-ai...role-in-libya/

http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone...ied-into-a-sam

Also I've read reports of HAWK being used as a AAM by Iranians

IIRC, the Argentines fired an Exocet SSM from a trailer on land.

In Desert Storm a Canadian CF-18 attacked an Iraqi patrol boat with an AIM-7 it just missed it they tried to lock on with a AIM-9 but there wasn't enough of a heat signature.
Air to Air missiles aren't that good at attacking ground and sea targets.

The Sea Dart could be used against small surface vessels, but when in 'surface mode' it wouldn't arm the warhead, instead relying on the kinetic energy of the missile and remaining propellant.
