Given that it is likely that at least one of the 1200 open-participation IETF meeting attendees -- all of whom have access to the WiFi password -- sometimes indulges in bad actor behavior, then it might be worth clarifying exactly what the incremental benefit is, in having WiFi encryption, if one is already using TLS liberally.

(For extra credit, it would be interesting to see where this benefit is already documented on the net.)
