Is rekeying timer the correct place for this? Wouldn't the key become
unneeded when the last STA using it gets removed? Anyway, WEP should not
really be used today, so I'm not sure it would be justifiable to add any
more complexity here unless this is required for something else to work.
Would be more valuable to consider just removing support for dynamic WEP
keys with VLAN altogether..
