Maybe its a language thing; however, I am not comprehending what you
are trying got say.

You would, or at least I would, limit the networks I want to
automatically connect to. That can be as few as one, or none if you
simply disable it entirely.

FreeBSD suffers from unneeded user intervention in order to configure
the device, assuming (and that is a large assumption) that a driver
is available for said device. In the case of "N" protocol devices, the
chances of one being available ate moot to none.
