No... "e-Science" has been co-opted by "grid" as their own. 
Collaborative computational science has been around for quite some time. 
  Determining the appropriate degree of distributed computational 
interprocess communication requires more than trivial examination of the 
codes in use.

Please don't fall into the trap of thinking "e-Science" requires a tie 
to the Globus Toolkit to be valid.
