Basically ATL is not needed at all - everything could be implemented 
without it. But at least some of the code in the very low level COM 
stuff was much easier to write with ATL.

In the former Framework team we have been working on replacing ATL code, 
but we only finished the task for one library. There's still a lot of 
work to do.
