wiconfig(8) and non-wi(4) 802.11 drivers

Hello!  I'd like to use some of the functionality offered by
wiconfig(8), but for drivers other than wi(4).  (More specifically,
I'd like to implement some of its knobs in bwi(4).)  I examined the
implementation of wiconfig(8), and it seems awfully specific to the
design of the wi(4) hardware.  Is it worth my time to emulate the way
that wi(4) looks, implementing the SIOCGIFGENERIC and SIOCSIFGENERIC
ioctls with struct wi_req buffers; or will this be changing to
something more generic in the kernel's 802.11 support?
