Defining information architecture (2)

Some time ago I posted on definitions of information architecture. Gartner sees information architecture as part of, what they call, Enterprise Architecture. So, within the Enterprise Architecture (which basically comprises the whole company) there's an information architecture, with an information architect. The picture describes his/her roles. Gartner distinguishes between three levels of architects. It's not clear to me why that make this distinction and call all of them information architects. I would call the first (left) one an information architect. The second (middle) one I would join with the first. The third (right) is the information management department employee to me.
