I am old fashioned this way, also, but I think most modern users would
not care, any more about this. They are used to pretty much having all
their data exposed to the internet, available via cellphone, and used
to having their security cameras and other personal information, gone,
out there.

They just want internet.

I perceive two choices for the split, one at the PHY DAC or, two, a minimalist 802.3 tunneling of 802.11 back to the FiWi head end. Use 802.3 to leverage merchant silicon supporting up to 200 or so RRHs or even move the baseband DSP there. I think a split PHY may not work well but a thorough eng analysis is still warranted.
