I potentially understand the need to have a separate mesh network from device ownership, but only really if the gateway could support more than one mesh.
Say in a close community where the gateway is run by a supplier and they sell monitors or something that is claimed by a tenant that then connects to the mesh service supplied by the supplier.
However, as mesh is only really short ranged and only really useful for one network of one owner, I personally would say that a mesh network should belong to the device owner. Certainly the owner of the gateway device, in any case, and when transferring ownership, it should transfer everything?
But then there could be a scenario where you sell a product that uses mesh, and supply a subscription to the mesh that you still own.
Mmmh Tricky. Maybe what is needed is the option to transfer or not, the mesh at the same time when unclaiming. For me Provisioning a device with mesh has now got a little more complicated as we plan in claiming a device and mesh for pre-provisioning and testing then unclaiming and selling the unit.
Food for thought.
