I would disagree. If we theoretically allow multi-ethnic and
multi-lingual areas, we could identify (Proto-Proto-!) Slavs with the
farmers in Zarubyntsi and Przeworsk, later surviving in a band between
Niemcza and Dniepr (this is the "Polish archaologists'" part), later
reinforced with (Proto-) Slavs from Dniepr (the mainstream part).
As for the Kortlandt quote, he is obviously accepting the mainstream
view, which influences some of his temporal estimates.
