Cisco did a small scale demo/test with that exact scenario. I don't know a whole lot about it other than I talked with the guy that was involved. He said that the client units would build a GRE tunnel back to somewhere and that is how they retained their same IP as they roamed.
My own dealings with several hospitals doing VoIP via wireless, it is best for the APs to have the phone SSID in a big bridge, so you can hand them off as the radio re-associates and it doesn't have to change IPs. Then you don't have to worry about all the broadcasts because the only devices in that VLAN/SSID are the phones themselves. Then use another SSID in another VLAN that is not in the bridge, but routed.

Where the end user retains the same IP address even after it get routed between various towers and is wireless medium independent(wifi, wimax, cdma). Does anyone here have experience/ideas with that?
