    I donĀ“t think this will be the case. If you think about it 802.11a and 802.11b where 2 different things and the coexist and in some cases they were deployed in the same. It will be highly probably they will be in the same box 802.11ac (which is backward compatible with a,b,g,n) and 802.11-2012 . May be in the future they will merge the 3 bands. They cannot release 2012 alone because everything work in a,b,g or n, nobody will buy it in that way.
