can any vinaigrette be a marinade?

I read something on Cook's Illustrated blasting users of Wishbone Italian dressing for using this as a marinade. But I make vinaigrette all the time and except for maybe a heavy dose of acid(vinegar I mean) can't any vinaigrette be used as a marinade given reasonable marinating times?

And the vinaigrette I have in mind to marinade is this:

Veg oil
red wine vinegar
chile in adobo

for chicken breasts
