Instead of devoting so much time and energy whining about the
problem here on-list, even though you know full well that we can't
do anything about it for known reasons... why won't you lobby the
manufacturers of "N" devices, so that they either open their specs,
so we can write a driver, or at least release binary blobs compatible
with FreeBSD? Wouldn't that be more productive? You're very
outspoken on some aspects, so put that rhetorical skill to good use
and contact the major wireless chipset vendors; and then follow up
with them if you don't get the reply you want, just as you do here
