Since you asked for comments:  Oh boy, now we have yet *another* 
set of stuff to standardize!  If this approach is taken we really 
are just moving complexity around, and not eliminating it.  I predict 
that if this approach is taken, somewhere up at the next level in 
the stack we'll find something else to standardize. ;^)

At this point in time comprehensive packages from a single vendors 
make much more sense that trying to fully modularize (a la "plug 
and play") the architecture.  However, I do note that some of the 
interfaces you list above might consist of passing only a file or 
a few parameters (such as ebCPA handler and ebBPSS handler), and 
others may not necessarily have any interfaces (such as between ebCPA 
handler and ebCPP handler).  So, a certain degree of modularity may 
be achievable without too much effort.
