Think of the RF frontend as an accessory. You choose it according to 
your requirements regarding frequency spectrum, channel bandwidth, 
signal power, MIMO, overall quality. I think OpenCellular is based on 
such a concept.

This needs standardization of interfaces and form factors. Like in the 
personal computer industry.

Don't hold your breath but if it is happening, hardware costs will drop 
to a fraction. Nobody will any longer think of doing customized chipsets 
for 802.11, GSM or LTE.
