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.

wpa2 enterprise provides forward security, merely using the same
username and password doesn't provide you with the ability to snoop
other traffic.

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