What's the real scope of hardware openness?

If I understand correctly, the real big problem, as for legal
issues and technical issues, is the GSM protocol.

Using WiFi for a similar goal should be fine, though.

The problem is that you can reach much shorter distances
without the help of someone else's spot.

Suppose we would have such a great adoption of NEO
or similar openmoko phones, in some areas at least,
that we could do well even without the use of access

It should be the point of this wishlist post:

Suppose also that the needed software gets deployed
such as BATMAN, Netsukuku, whatsoever.

Then we could get closer to the goal.
(get rid of the bastards, you remember?)
Do I mistake again?
