quite likely - it's much easier for them to make blanket disallowances
for all wireless than to disallow "cleartext over wireless" and leave it
up to the employees to make sure there are protocol/appl-level encryption
algo's in place

PHY level security shouldn't be relied upon in *any* case, of course,
whether 802.3 or 802.11 (or even 802.5 ;)
