Recently I had to create Web Part connection between BDC based list and usual SharePoint list. BDC list was provider and usual SharePoint list was consumer. I was pretty surprised if found out that I was able to connect BDC based list only to other BDC based Web Parts. All the other Web Parts were not able to be consumers for them. Same time BDC lists were able to be consumers of the other web parts.
