There should be a niche for both at the same time. LoRaWAN is relevant
right now and we should aim for making it possible to run a native Linux
gateway for it.

As for IP for long range low power there is the static context header

cases of such networks. Implementing it within the existing 6lwopan
subsystem should be possible.
