Another possible addition to the list could be some of the mesh routing
protocols that have/are being developed for wireless and/or sensor
networks. As laptops have overtaken desktops in sales, and they usually
come with wired and wireless interfaces, it probably wouldn't be much
of an unacceptable burden for them to also act mesh routers.
They'll do more throughput and have faster CPUs than most routers that
would be present in most residential and SOHO environments.
