Actually, the info was to meant to provide operators with very
rudimentary AP tracking info that can mostly be done from the network
devices.  If someone has login access to a switch/router, you can
use the MAC and IGMP address info to identify potential APs fairly
easily at the CLI or via scripts.

If there is incorrect or missing information, as I mentioned at the
mic, I'd appreciate any updates.  Feel free to send them to me via
private email and I can send out an update if there is interest.
