Yup, Jay, you understand my issue perfectly.  

But the thing I still don't get is, do you, and if so how do you break out
the T1 clients?  

Client T1 --> LEC --> ATM-OC3 --> LS1010 --> OC3 --> Router
						|	  (local)     |
						|			  |
						\-------- T1 -------/


Client T1 --> LEC --> ATM-OC3 --> LS1010 --> 1.5Mbps PVC in OC3 --> Router

Obviously the latter would preferable, no matter how cheap the T1 cards are.

I'm not talking about ATM on T1.  I'm talking about T1 on ATM.  The CPE
interface is plain old T1 at both ends.

Yeah, I wasn't figuring delivering the T1 at the edges via ATM, just over
in the cloud.

The upper layers are whatever you want.  It looks like a real T1 to the gear
at the edges.
