Is “atypical coverage” really important in community acquired pneumonia?

In this study the inclusion of atypical coverage was not associated with reduced mortality but did result in shortened time to clinical stability.

Did the article show anything other than you probably don't need atypical coverage if you are not infected with an atypical.The worse atypical( if the test diagnosed it)was treated for even in the monotherapy arm.
