Rachel, I tried the lazy way to show that QB can do what you asked for for.
I made the mistake, being lazy, to use information from their web site
without really making sure it supported the point I was trying to make. I am
aware of the inners of QB, which includes transactions to allow what you
were enquiring about. However, being lazy, I thought that the information on
their web site was good enough. As you pointed out politely, I was wrong. I
should have spend more time in finding a way to reproduce the information
that available via QB SDK, even if it is not easily reproducible. I will not
make that mistake again. As to your question:

The short answer is, not by itself. However, there are 3rd Party EDI
front-ends to QB that utilize the QB SDK to receive EDI PO, PO returns, RFQ,
Invoices, Payment Advice, Credit notice, etc.. In other words, QB via its
API allows the automation via 3rd party solutions to provide the
Quote-PO-to-Payment cycle. Since 3rd party vendors have provided for an EDI
interface, it should be possible to give QB an ebXML front-end.

Since QB does have a large market share in the "small business" area,
proving a shrink-wrap ebXML front-end may just be what is required.
