IIRC, I said that both styles (and citing me) "share 99% of their 
features", "are the same in esence" and "both are almost the same" but I 
Did not recall myself saying they are "equal" or "1:1" :-)

You (not "you" but people) can indeed make more divisions for the posting 
styles, e.g., I've received business related e-mails where the full 
replied e-mail was attached to the message and AFAIK, this is not covered 
by none of the main posting styles listed in the Wikipedia article. 
Still, I would consider such communication uses a top-posting-alike style 
because in the end you are prioritizing your own reply instead making the 
content legible for anyone else.
