I don't mind ripping them out, but it makes sense only if people are actually signed up to implementing this on a higher layer. As such, I'd need to get a sign-off from somebody actually involved in wireless mesh stuff etc.

Correct me if I'm wrong, linux-wireless, but AFAIK there has never been a single post or line of code written for a generic wireless _mesh_ interface.
