Bill, now I doubt if you read the paper carefully or not.

First of all, this paper does not design the ATM-NAP architecture BUT is a 
ROUTING DESIGN for the planned ATM-NAP architecture.  Please don't confuse
these two different issues.  

For the planned ATM-NAP architecture (i.e. RFC1490/AAL5) with the current
availability of the RS's (i.e. SUN) ATM interface product, what other choices 
do we have to connect the RS and do NAP routing at this time frame?
