Ah yes, it seems the main difference is more structure in the
matrices in the newer paper. But it has occurred to me that you
perhaps meant the method of discretizing each integrator in an
analog structure by itself. Borin et al. 2000 doesn't allude to
that, and I'd be interested in any references you know of.

The BLT (trapezoidal rule) is an implicit integration scheme in
contrast to explicit methods like backward Euler, so it actually
preserves the analog model's instantaneous transmission and you
end up with the need for a numerical solver -- or in the scalar
linear case, the traditional structure-changing step of putting
the transfer function back on a single fraction line after
substituting for s.
