Is it End of Zachman ?

It's very sad the way things turned out for John Zachman's associations. Just came across an excellent post by Gartner's Philip Allega on this topic -

One would have expected further research from such elites, rather than just attempts of commercialization of the framework. Really, not much has been added to the framework, since, it is published in 1980s... Though there is lot of value in the thoughts that are behind the framework, IMHO, the use of framework itself is quite hyped.
In comparison, other established EA frameworks ( and methodologies) like TOGAF and even the new upcoming like EACOE are quite useful. May be they will continue Zachman's legacy.. but without his name !
Looks like he wants it that way.
