I included that as a concurrent operation.. In other words, I'm
comparing a case where no interface is operating as a station, AP, GO,
etc. to a case where one or more does. I don't see why a smaller limit
would be needed when there is no other operation in progress. Taken into
account that the shorter limit can cause harm (e.g., P2P interop issues
if you go below 500 ms), I'd take it into use only if there is real
identified need for it (e.g., that single GO operating).
