Not 'in spite of' but 'because of': agile: Multics--The first seven year

In the Multics--The first seven years (1972 Spring Joint Computer Conference) Corbato et al make the interesting statement:
"In spite of [bold added] the unexpected design iteration phase, the Multics system became sufficiently effective by late 1968 to allow system programmers to use the system while still developing it."
I think that many from the agile community might change the "in spite of" to "because of"...
