Thanks for your efforts! Interestingly, the stub sections about eduroam
et al. in your draft coincides nicely with Klaas' wish about describing
existing deployments. Of course there is still text missing for those
stubs. As soon as my time permits, I will flesh out the eduroam parts.
Input from others and their current problem mitigation approaches is
most welcome!
