Oh yeah, there should be no problem in a layer 2 mesh, if the mesh

AHCP is only needed in a layer 3 mesh.

I don't think it is too outrageously off-topic.  If the respectable
recipients of this list object, we'll move to a more suitable forum.
(There's unfortunately no suitable forum for protocol-agnostic
discussions about mesh routing.)
