Yes indeed.

Once past transport, the receiver's business service interface has, broadly 
speaking, two problems.

First, it must correctly interpret the element that identifies the schema 
(such as X12) in which the payload documents are encoded, so it can send 
that data stream to something that can interpret it.  (Like your EDI engine.)

Second, it must correctly apply the ebXML business signals so that it can 
read and process the simple business-rule context of that payload -- Is 
this a response?  A request?  To what?  Is it logically dependent on or 
conditioned on another message already received, or to come?  Is this 
binding?  Does it conform to whatever rules for acknowledgement, encryption 
or signature are invoked?

The ebXML business process group spent a lot of time working closely with 
the X12, EDIFACT and RosettaNet communities precisely to preserve the 
upgrade path you describe.
