Another possible benefit, if we figure out how to make the 3.4Ghz solution
work between Beacon/CP, is it could be re-used between CP and Queen Anne.
I totally understand Bart's point, having common standards is important and
has benefits. I think what Doug is suggesting is that maybe this is a case
where we need a new standard. We have hit a situation that the old
approaches are not working, so lets look for a new one.
