Serial ata is still ata? It was not supposed to be scsi. It's better then ide
for sure, but reonventing scsi wouldn't have had a point I think. Serial ata
still doesn't have command scheduling on the drive, or the ability to send
multiple commands at a time like scsi (afaik), but at least they got rid of
the short cables, the master-slave stuff etc.

Besides, as far as I am aware, the next thing to come about is serial scsi.
This might actually be interesting.
