I have planned implementing IAPP at some point in the future, but it was still a moving target when I last time (quite many months ago) checked the drafts from IEEE 802.11 group. Quite a bit of functionality from the original IAPP has apparently disappeared, but I would have to check the latest situation to comment this more concretely.

Anyway, IAPP implementation will probably wait until the reorganization of the driver so that most of the management functionality is moved to a user space daemon from the kernel driver. IAPP draft talked mostly about signaling between APs (using UDP, if I remember correctly), so it will fit quite well to the user space part of the AP functionality.
