Butch, to do Layer 3 fast roaming, Cisco uses GRE tunnels into a WLSM module. 
That combined with CCX extensions allow them to do under 50 ms handoffs. 
Supposedly, just the CCX extensions make it possible for under 150 ms handoffs. 
I wonder if it is possible for Mikrotik to implement any of these protocols.
