Celtix has JAX-WS nearly fully done (hard to tell when the TCK isn't 
available yet), where as XFire only has about 50% done.  Additionally 
Celtix has things like WS-RM, better JMX Integration, a better JMS 
transport, etc.

I don't presume to speak for IONA, but after chatting with them a fair 
amount I wouldn't let their marketing team influence your opinion of 
what the project is about.
