Shimano Ultegra 6600 HUBS have the short splines and will accept any 8, 9 or 10-speed cassette including SRAM. Ultegra 10-speed WHEELS have the tall splines and will only accept Shimano 10-speed cassettes (or the SRAM Red cassette which apparently also has the same deep spline pattern).

As Bob Barker noted, Shimano has redesigned Dura Ace hubs to go back to the short spline pattern and may also have redesigned the Dura Ace and Ultegra wheels to use the same freehub.
