And this is the approach two of the NAP providers are planning to implement 
their NAPs initially.

This paper describes a solution to connect the RS and do routing on the 
currently planned ATM-NAP technology (i.e. RFC1490/AAL5) based on the 
availability of the products.  If we want to connect to the planned ATM-NAP 
now, that is the approach.

The paper does not address the issue of selecting protocol stacks for the
ATM-NAPs.  It is beyond the scope of the paper.  We have a revised version
which clarifies this point.
