I think the focus  (of EFF) of this movement is more ample than a free 
wireless mesh.

They pretend to go farther than using "standard" "legal" equipment.  
This initiative
aims at a legal and technology framework.   EFF wants that you can use 
the right to use
the free wireless bands to be able to intercommunicate without using the 
networks ...
