And I don't see the value in integrating the WiFi. There is a well-defined abstraction to the network with moderate bandwidth required. It's the archetype for a functionality that should be on a separate chip with a vendor-neutral interface.

I think, in battery powered mobile devices, there is a power benefit to integrating it.

Away from the battery powered mobile device use-case, I completely agree it is better off chip.
