What are you expecting from chip makers?  HW ASIC guys are rarely good at
writing sw and not so good at systems either. SW tends to be small, high
velocity teams that make a lot of mistakes through iterations. Some get
addicted to the velocity. ASICs tend to be low thousands of engineers
paying attention to a plethora of details like signal integrity to get a
$30M-50M mask right before spending another $100M+ for a run of millions.
Completely  different operating models. It's like comparing a container
ship to a NASA X-43.


PS. I think we're missing EDCA analysis which is a BSS manager and AP
thing.  The default values really aren't optimized for anything and just
are example settings. We also need active redundancy. Lots to be done still
from what I can tell.
