Yes, this will eventually be added.

In the end I'd like to have all WEXT code in it's own file or 
#ifdef'd and I'd like to have a working libertas_cs and 
libertas_usb that don't need WEXT at all. But that will take 
considerable time :-)   One step towards this goal will be 
monitor mode via NL80211.

Mesh-support via NL80211 must be done by someone else, I don't 
have neither the knowledge, mesh nodes nor a mesh-capable 
firmware. And I don't really care about mesh. So if no one else 
does it, the CFG80211-only libertas-driver won't have mesh at
