In the comments about a recent survey on agile adoption (http://www.methodsandtools.com/dynpoll/oldpoll.php?Agile2), there is the fear that as agility is now becoming "trendy", we may see a number of organizations that will qualify now themselves as "agile", without implementing the essence of the agile software development practices. Has anybody see some signs of such situation?

Yes, this unfortunately happens all the time, which is why myself and others have been pushing for accepted criteria to determine if a team is agile. Until we have such criteria we'll have the problem that ad-hoc hackers will claim that they're agile.

I read somewhere that pair programming comes under Agile, but your list doesn't mention it...

Well, Pair Programming is certainly one way to work "in a highly collaborative, self-organizing manner?" It's a very effective one, but probably not really *required* to be Agile...
