level of discipline feels different from a low level. Alistair used
to say that Crystal was designed to require low discipline (and
implicitly XP wasn't). I see no reason why a sufficiently
low-discipline execution of XP wouldn't begin to look a lot like
Crystal or Scrum, or why high-discipline versions of those wouldn't
look like XP.
I think it is all one elephant, whose tail and trunk and legs we
grab onto and apply as our needs and judgment dictate.
