At least I would suggest to:

1) Include the consideration of the effect of the
introduction of wired-links, at least in the backbone. Our vision
is to have three of four wireless hops at most everywhere.

2) Avoid the idea of a totally unplanned network made out of ultra-cheap
devices. Obviously the performance of a WiFi 10€ router should not be
comparable to a >1000€ wired router.

3) Include the social economics in the economics section (otherwise
you will observe inexplicable behaviours).

Best regards.
