Thank you for responding.

We could take advantage of this property, and install an NDN stack on the AP that aggregates Interests and caches Data.
?You mean we turn a L2 device (access point) into a wireless router?
?>?the AP treats the WiFi link as both a multi-access link where packets can be broadcast to all wireless clients, and one point-to-point link to each wireless link.
Does that make any difference? An ap treat a link as a multiple-access or a point-to-point link. I mean in both cases, the ap does the same thing(transmit one copy of a packet). The only difference would be in L2 addressing?, right? Of course there could be difference if using omnidirectional or unidirectional antennas, which could be a big deal facing mobile nodes. But that's out of computer networking scope.

Ethernet repeater and UDP multicast group are two examples of multi-access
Infrastructure WiFi is different: at MAC layer, all communications go
through the AP (access point).
We could take advantage of this property, and install an NDN stack on the
AP that aggregates Interests and caches Data. Under this design, a wireless
client treats the WiFi link as a point-to-point link to the AP, and the AP
treats the WiFi link as both a multi-access link where packets can be
broadcast to all wireless clients, and one point-to-point link to each
