I didn't have time to pick up all your points (and I don't
really have time even for this, so it will be brief).

You asked what router functions the example I gave satisfied:

- It's running a routing protocol, and actively participating in
  it. For example running OLSR it picks MPRs and communicates
  them.

- When a host on that node sends a packet, it chooses which
  neighbour is to be the next hop (possibly even which interface
  to use to do that) in order to route correctly.

That'll do to be going on from.

As for what my mobile is running to pick different points of
attachment, it's running an entire UMTS protocol stack (and
a GSM one) to select between base stations. And it's a much
more asymmetric relationship than any in an ad hoc network.

I did.  I even quoted 2501 in part of my message
to you that you didn't answer.

Mobile nodes do this today and they aren't classified
as routers.  You can even do it without running Mobile IP
to some extent.

Charlie P.
