Yes, some ANSI formats are obsolete. I would argue, however, that EDI still has strong presence not as a variety of standards — which were never terribly uniform — but as a viable model for transaction-oriented electronic commerce (e.g., funds transfer, airline reservations) and domain-specific information exchange (e.g., HL7 and the separately developed DICOM in medicine).
