[riot-devel] IEEE 802.15.4 addressing

now that we start to get in IEEE 802.15.4/6LoWPAN territory with
netdev/netapi [1-3] I wonder if it makes sense to not have 2
(16-bit/64-bit) but 3 addressing modes:
* 16-bit short address
* 32-bit (16-bit PAN ID + 16-bit short address) as originally introduced to
RIOT, but somehow ignored over since then in 
* 64-bit long address.
As far as I read , there is not really any use-case for PAN ID + long
The API proposed in netdev/netapi need no change for this. It's rather a
question what the drivers and 6LoWPAN should accept and generate as
addressing formats for packets.
Tell me what you think.
