Nah, no need to worry about docs. :-)

Interesting.  How well does that work?  I mean using OSPF?
How well does it recover from a network drop-out?  Or are
you using a small enough set of links it converges very
quickly again?  Are you placing all your APs into the
backbone area?  And does the route flooding cause any blips
in the perceived service?
