I do disagree on this. I think there is no need to have it fixed to one 
way or another (net OR wpan). It has been working fine with this mixed 
approach for quite a long time. The current issue with v1 being applied 
instead of v2 is something that could have happened to us when applying 
to wpan as easily.

If we are quick enough to ack/apply patches hitting the list (1-2 days) 
its unlikely any of them will be applied to net. Dave and Jakub simply 
help us to make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

I applied the two patches earlier today and just send out a pull request 
for net with them.
