Was a giggle, though it also shows that it's a good thing for all 
parties to play nice. :-)  The issue of interference is one reason 
I'm hesitant to run much more than wifi power levels in any mode on 
2.4 GHz (e.g. if I get ATV up and running on 2.4 GHz).  Yes, I know I 
can, legally, but it's not conducive to good karma to do so. ;) As 
far as wifi goes, it's much easier to just run within the class 
licence.  More nodes to talk to and one doesn't have to care too much 
about who's allowed to associate with your node (beyond any security 
and other routine parameters).
