depends, some network still use fixed bitrates,..
and to some extend this imho makes stil sense )-;

but imho battle mesh tests should lean towards recent/future
configurations, not legacy ones,..

you don`t as the radio only has a bitrate if u manually set one *G

else it has usually just some ideas of which bitrates to use/try per
neighbour,.. (-;

infact we would need to log bitrate usage patterns per neighbour (as its
usually more than one bitrate that gets  used per any typical logging

and somehow i doubt that someone really wants to look at this logs

so hmm, maybe we should test just with fixed bitrate

btw how many protocols in test have bitrate aware metrics?

depends (-;
