Next Gen WiFi 802.11ax

I understand the groups are being put together for 802.11ax. I was wondering if anyone has any information on backward compatibility. Could the protocol version actualy see a bit flip. While I undestand it will be full-duplex, still so many questions .. I suppose we will see the WiFi alliance first with something. Rumor is 3 - 4 years out? Anyone hearing anything on it ?

Not much data on it on the web. This is the only reliable data I see. http://www.ieee802.org/11/Reports/hew_update.htm

May have already saw this but if not,there is some good reading here. Not verified information but good reading. Mentions an acheived throughput of 10.53 Gb using MIMI-OFDA by a Chinease .11ax workgroup.
