I haven't thought this out but 802.11ax is very different per things like
AP based scheduling of transmits (trigger frames), assigning to RU (sub
carriers), and per STA tx power control.  I think the implementations of
these is outside the standard as well.  Those writing traffic schedulers
will mostly likely be impacted.
