I already though about something similar.
But when I look at all the different build variants we have I think this
is too much, it confuses me.
I think we have 3 classes of devices 4MB flash, 8MB flash and 16MB+ flash.
I would use two variants with openssl and wolfssl which supports
everything, so the full variant which then also includes MESH and P2P.
There we probably only need wpad and not wpa_supplicant and hostapd.

Then the bigger question is what do we need on the constrained devices?
