Here are some distinct things:
1. Offer-Acceptance as a description 
of the rules of contract formation.
2. UNECE Recommendation 31, Electronic Commcerce Agreement
as a pretty neutral set of rules for doing offer-acceptance 
electronically.
3. RosettaNet PIP 3A4 as a document specifying
a particular set of messages and signals for executing
UNECE Recommendation 31.
4. An ebXML BPSS script describing PIP A34 in XML
(which RosettaNet is actually developing).
5. An implementation of the BPSS script using BPEL
or BTP or BPML.
6. Web Services for participating in that implementation.
7. A runtime transaction executing that implementation.

I would tend to call #1 a Business Protocol,
but whatever you call them, each of the above
is something different-but-related.
