This is simply a non-sequitur.   It has nothing to do with homenet.   It has to do with how the stack works on your home, and what the propagation of radio waves looks like in your back yard.   The assumption that you will be able to access your jukebox over your neighbor's wifi contains packed in it so much new protocol work we could fork several working groups to handle it.

I hear you.   But why should the working group care what you prefer?   I don't say that to be dismissive, but to encourage you to give a reason that isn't just an opinion.
