What we need is a better routing metric that detects that some links are 
better or worse than others. If we can make OLSR detecting speed, lossrate and 
similar stuff and put it into the metric there is no need for large scale 

The option to say "emergency link, don't use unless necessary" might be still 
useful of course.
