For someone quickly looking for a Creative card to support a certain level of EAX does this chart look accurate?

Not really, DSP is practically identical. Audigy 2 fixed some issues from original release and added more channels. And Audigy 4 Pro is Audigy 2 ZS Pro but "20% cooler". Creative were milking the market with pretty much the same stuff quite heavily.

What happens with EAX compatibility on the Live! when you use the Audigy drivers?

Add Sound Blaster PCI 128 maybe?

I guess it depends on whether or not we should consider software EAX as a proper implementation. All the other cards on that list have hardware EAX.

Wouldn't it be something like
Live EAX2 and below
Audigy 4 and below
X-Fi 5 and below

That table suggests no backward compatibility
