thats mostly fine (as long as u do not suffer from bssid splits)
(thats why i would recommend setting bssid)

Why do you ask that?

as setting the same bssid on different channels, is no good idea, but afaic
some people do it for simplicity,..


p.s. regarding window, afair there are (besides message interval) no
(configuration) tuneables in actual linksensing

but how long does it need for you until a new link is symmetric?
