I don't know think that Cancellara can climb with Armstrong. Then again, when the hammer falls I have doubts about Armstrong being able to climb with Contador.
As for the rider types you listed, yes, that's about right. There are also riders who don't really excel at any of those disciplines but are very capable of just putting their head down and working working working. I couldn't climb for crap, couldn't sprint but had the mentality where I could put a lot of work in to try and close gaps. I may have made a decent TT.
Every member of a team has their role. Whether it be to win the race, lead out the designated sprinter or carry water.
