Alex, 

None of the MANET networks I deploy are based on WiFi. I think that turning the discussion into one that is 802.11-centric is not a good idea -- it's analogous to our earlier discussion on distance of the radio link. Why should the Layer 2 protocol in use effect the selection of Layer 3 addresses?
