To consider doing that, there'd have to be a concrete benefit to doing so.  Most of Cake's most useful features, beyond what fq_codel already supports, are actually implied or even done better by the WiFi environment and the mac80211 layer adaptation (particularly airtime fairness).

You can of course attach a Cake instance to the wifi interface as well, if you have a need to do so.
