Indeed, I'm getting more and more convinced that this is the right thing
to do. 

As Gilles points out,

which makes me think that they might be also available in PCI xDSL
devices, and the like.  I guess it may be reasonable to subclass ATM
device into a DSL device, with extra stats, under /sys/class/atm.

Unfortunately I still don't have a clear perception of Chas' attitude to
the proposed several weeks ago class/atm stuff.  I'll reiterate on that once
2.6.11 is out.

Anyway having DSL stats hanging off class/atm/device, one value per
file, in a uniform fashion for all the devices, appears the most
attractive solution to me.
