The moscow variation of the sicilian can (and should, imo) be similar to the Maroczy bind, but it's not the same. For starters white has reduced his pressure on the b5 square and will often need to prepare to meet a6 with a4 (Qd3 is an alternative, but has it's own problems). It seems odd but the horrible lsB in the maroczy bind is actually pretty useful in helping to keep black from preparing b5 or d5 and making an easy draw.
Trysts is gone?! :(
