There is an IETF group (BOF?) looking into this. 802.11k and v are also
trying to provide some solutions, but they are uncoordinated as far as I
know. IMHO it needs to be an IETF solution because of the converged
devices that are cropping up. I'm not sure anyone has lifted their
heads out of -- the sand -- yet on this though.
