I have addressed the IEEE article here

http://advancednano.blogspot.com/2007/09/where-is-mechanosynthesis-in-progress.html

1. There are plenty of potentially worthwhile scientific and engineering endeavors which take a long time to occur.
2. There are specific instances of other long term plans which have received significant money but not delivered results.
ie. Smalley's carbon nanotube grid proposed in 1995. received $11 million. Little to show for it.
ie. Tokomak nuclear fusion. Billions over many decades. Very little to show for it. Not conclusive that this is best way to achieve commercial nuclear fusion
3. Von Ehr has not spent $100 million on mechanosynthesis development. Even the atomically precise manufacturing effort is for atomic layer deposition
