There are two different types of roaming.

You have the case like I deal with at SCaLE where you are moving within one 
network (within one site)

Then you have the case where you are moving between sites.

within one site, roaming and migrating VMs are pretty much the same problem and 
handling it at layer2 makes a lot of sense (how frequently the migrations 
happen, and how permanent they are varies, both for wifi nodes and VMs)
