Are Wifi MAC addresses considered the same as Ethernet addresses? (If not, or maybe even if they're the same, for less ambiguity, I'd mention them here. ) A quick look says there are 3 per frame, not 2, but they're the same length and ifconfig wlan0 calls it "ether", so I don't know.

As for Ethernet, I think it covers wired Ethernet and wireless Ethernet (also known as Wi-Fi or 802.11 network). So it won't cause ambiguities.

I'm not expert in wireless Ethernet. Glad to hear more voices about that.

WFM. Not going to delay approval longer since no one objected in 4 days.
