802.11n: Is it alphabet soup?

One of my favorite wireless blogs is "The Ruckus Room" written by Ruckus Wireless's PR guy.http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
Today he has written a good piece about the problems with the 802.11n standard:
"The biggest problem with 802.11n systems today is lack of consistency of performance. There's no getting around it.

Under certain conditions 802.11n devices yield tremendous performance gains over older .11g/.11a systems (and these are the numbers vendors typically quote), but under a wide variety of conditions that are typically encountered in real world deployments their performance suffers.

Inconsistent performance of .11n is one of the huge unspoken problems in the Wi-Fi industry. No one wants to talk about it since most vendors don’t have adequate means to address the problem."
