Section 4.6.40 says:
4 - Base MAC Address: The WTP's Base MAC address, which MAY be assigned to the primary Ethernet interface.
It should say:
4 - Base MAC Address: The WTP's Base MAC address MUST be included in the WTP Board Data message element, and MAY be assigned to the primary Ethernet interface.
This is to correct the problem that the requirement for the Base MAC Address (mandatory or optional) is not defined in the spec. This change is needed to allow the MIBs to use the Base MAC Address as an index, and has been approved by the CAPWAP WG.
