RE: Titanis paper?

Interesting that the restoration of Titanis accompanying the paper shows it with typical avian wings, not the "arms" that have been postulated for it (not to mention that restorations showing Titanis facing human beings may require some revision!). Is there now evidence contradicting the view that Titanis' wings had developed intograsping arms?
