The SCEA for Java EE 5 exam is only in the survey stage - there has been, as of yet, no date announced for its availability for taking. This is why you've not seen any mention of it yet on Sun's certification site. (This is an update from the current exam, where Part I deals with J2EE 1.2 technology.)
Therefore, if you're looking for an answer towards SCBCD, neither version out there corresponds to the same technology level as the SCEA. SCBCD 5 deals with Java EE 5 (EJB 3) and SCBCD 1.3 covers J2EE 1.3 (EJB 2.0).
That all being said... the technology version is only important for Part I. You can use any released version of Java EE for Part II of the current exam, including Java EE 5.

SCJP/SCSNI/SCBCD/SCWCD/SCDJWS/SCMAD/SCEA/MCTS/MCPD... and so many more letters than you can shake a stick at!

But there is high possibility that assignment will be updated to include current trend of web service and SOA. So it may not be of same weight.
SCJP 2(94%), SCBCD 5.0(86%), SCDJWS(86%), SCEA 5 (I-73%, II/III-88%)
