Also pins for SCSI ID.

But yes, it is just a mechanical difference.  I've got a few adapters
between SCA (which IIRC is 80-pin) and 68-pin SCSI which are totally
passive, just connectors and a bit of PC board.  (I've even got one
which goes to 50-pin instead of 68-pin.)  They have multiple connectors
on the "other" (non-SCA) side - SCSI bus, power, and config, where the
latter includes SCSI ID and I think a few other things (it's been a
while since I looked at one; I can't recall details).
