Perhaps. The paper abstract mentions both, and seems to say that the
solution is with DNS-SD+new software. There's another paper from the
same authors that talks about saturation in mesh networks.

I'd like to read that paper (anyone got access to IEEE pubs?) . In
fact, I'd like to find that someone has implemented DNS-SD on 802.11s
networks and had a raging success. I want it simple and safe :-)
