Isn't this just a suggestion to more or less faithfully reproduce the 
control and
bearer planes of the TDM network also? I'd think that this fate sharing 
aspect of the
internet model is a feature rather than a bug. That is, putting 
everything on the same
wire forces you to deal with QoS or get the predictable results. That 
and building out
separate and unequal networks pretty much sucks?
