Even though ATMnet has been delivering IP-over-ATM to commercial users
longer than any other provider, we never claim that the Internet should
exist *EXCLUSVELY* as ATM technology. Quite the contrary, we (and our
customers) see the technical and economic power of ATM technology in the
ability to support fully integrated services.

It's either you missed another point or I invented this another point in my
mind - a large chunk of Vadim's paper is devoted to the topic of pure IP's
being no worse that ATM for "integrated" services.
