No, I agree with you.

It does not make sense to "compare" ICE with SOAP, for example, as they
intend to address completely different problem spaces.

The chart does have value, though, because it forces the issue of
considering how each of the noted initiatives either augment each other or
can be reconciled.

The more I read specs and related material of the "protocols" listed in
Eric's matrix, th more I feel, that heavyweights like BizTalk, eCo, ebXML
should not be mentioned in one go with protocols like XMLRPC, SOAP or WDDX.
The former are far more than just protocols, they provide an integrative
infrastructure for E-commerce. So IMO BizTalk and Co. should not directly be
compared to XMLRPC and Co.,  I think the two "groups of protocols" have been
designed with completely different intentions.

Correct me, if I got it wrong :)
