James, If W and Z were different, it would not be meaningful to compare the b0's from the two models, because their definitions are different. In the first model, b0 is the slope of Y against X after adjusting for Z, whereas in the second model b0 is the slope of Y against X after adjusting for W. Similarly, the definitions of a are different. You don't say why you aren't using a single model, with an indicator variable for, say, the high level of the other variable and an interaction between that indicator and X. Then you could test whether the coefficient of that interaction term is 0. I see your comment about nonlinear models, but your models are not nonlinear. Even if you had a nonlinear model, the interaction might not be any more difficult to interpret.
