I personally and professionally would not like something like that.
When i configure something i expect it to be exactly what i configured.
Auto-magically changing what is running to something that is not 
specified just leads to unexpected surprises later on...


If you want to hide config errors from your endusers,
why don't you adjust the code that generated the config for
hostapd to auto-magically mangle the hostapd-config?
