Why do they have to be backward compatible?   I can't see any reason
to over complicate things if it isn't needed.  There's very little
existing 9k6 infrastructure and it would be so much better if we had
these cheap modules running at higher speeds maybe even with better

Yes - it would be nice to have 9k6 - but I'd rather have 19k2 or
faster.   It might even be possible to make these compatible with the
soon (I hope)  UDR56K radios.
