Third paragraph -- as much as it pains me to say so, and as pervasive as
Ethernet interconnection of APs is, is this only for "WLAN service
without hard-wired connections" or could the backbone network also be
based on a wireless backhaul (e.g., 802.16)?
Third paragraph -- I would recommend the end to: "allow the military or
emergency services to place repeater nodes on mobile units that link to
a central point or even let individuals like fireman become a node in an
emergency communications network".
