    I will try to answer to your questions:
    1) Since the upgrade exams for MCSA/MCSE on Windows 2000 retired on March
    2008, if you want to earn the MCSE on Windows 2003 certification your only
    option is to credit the seven exams for MCSE. But, if you plan to work with
    Windows Server 2008 I suggest you to go the straight path and take the MCITP
    exams, because you only have to take five exams instead of seven.
    2) As far as I know, 70-284 and 70-285 count as elective for both MCSA and
    MCSE on Windows 2003, but not for the new MCITP credentials.

    I hope my answers help you.
