Thanks. This would imply that in a wholesale environment,  use of the
integrated ATA would have to be charged separatly with the telco then
handing off SIP traffic from the OLT to (likely) a nearby CLEC SIP
server that is colocated (or pay for transit to internet to reach
distant SIP server)

I know that in the australian NBN plan, they do charge separatly to
access the "dedicated" VoIP service,  but this is meant more as a means
to access the QoS managed bandwidth than to deal with handoff and IP
management service that is performed locally instead of by the ISP.
