Any IDM could arrange for addtl. foundry business internally, whereas a foundry cannot move to a IDM status... When Foundry's move to design services/design IP and contact the semiconductor customer directly this should be a warning signal for the IDM's... IDM's when managing their manufacturing capacitys correctly in general should have a cost advantage over Foundry companys (they will get the better pricing)...
