The largest of our mesh problems did not have to do with scalability on 
sheer number of nodes but rather scalability in density.  Is there any 
information available on how these networks perform when there are 50 - 
100 of them next all in the same room or in adjacent rooms?

In those scenarios we run into RF density issues even when using APs.
