Yes, all of this assumes the ability to tune some low-level things.
While I concur that a number of softmac will have the flexibility to do this,
I wonder about this *in general*.

A number of radios can send ACKs automatically in the MAC without waking up
the main CPU.  The ideas proposed in this document likely can not be
implemented in those devices, and/or there will be higher main CPU wake
times.  Of course, over time hardware will evolve.
