Fair enough, but this is like answering a question about whether butter is good with bread by suggesting that people with Celiac's should avoid it.   True, but not germane to the discussion.   Ideally your device should not be hopping back and forth between networks.   If it does, there is no work for homenet to do to address the problems that arise.

There has been talk about working on some formal presentation layer that could be used to address these problems, but that is not something that Homenet is chartered to work on, nor is this really where the right people congregate.
