I didn't choose anything, INTAREA was chosen by the people in the 
coordination group that includes several ADs. The multicast over wifi 
issue has been raised in multiple working groups.

So thanks for including mboned so that people there are aware that this is 
discussed in INTAREA. MBONED is not alone in having conflicts with 
INTAREA, there are other low-power wireless technology people who also 
have conflicts. Please discuss this issue on the INTAREA mailing list, and 
you can watch the presentation (it's not mine) after the fact on for 
instance Meetecho. I don't believe there is much time for discussion in 
the INTAREA meeting, they have a packed agenda already if I understood
