Well, it depends... Standards are certainly being adopted by all vendors of EAI software. IBM (which is a huge EAI vendor) is certainly moving towards supporting Web Services in all of its products. Other companies are doing the same. So, you can say that Web Services are becoming important in EAI, yes.
If you mean, however that "EAI as a software market is being replaced by using SOAP and HTTP from everywhere" then that's a bunch of malarkey. Vendors like IBM can provide SOAP and HTTP interfaces, but even so, Web Services over protocols like JMS/MQ Series and EAI things described as web services (like IBM's WSDL definitions of JCA) are still in the web services arena and very important. Web Services are making inroads in EAI, but not necessarily following Microsoft's overly restrictive definition of the term.
