In retrospect, I would reinterpret Figure 10 as showing that the advantage of ECOC over standard methods disappears as the learning algorithm becomes more local and increases as the learning algorithm becomes more global. So I view this as showing that the decision-boundary alignment hypothesis is likely to be at least partially correct.
