That's the best part. Several APs can have different channels in this
configuration, theoretically it's even possible for them to have
different bands (one with 2.4Ghz and another one with 5Ghz).
But convincing a WiFi station (a client) to seamlessly switch (the way
802.11r describes it) between APs in such scenario is impossible.
So I came to manually setting the same channel for both APs, and
changing it once per week.
