It would be interesting for a capable captive portal to send and listen on
LLDP *as well*.

In particular, LLDP lets the captive portal get MUD signals from the new
device as well.  This is important as captive portals won't be able to
challenge many devices that might be carried by people in the future,
and it would be a nice addition if a person could authorize a
second device they happen to own via their laptop.

This is very much out of scope for current work.
