Of course this would not affect people using WiMAX via external hotspots

Debian (and Ubuntu) never enabled WiMAX support in our packages. I don't
have plans to enable it in our Debian packages either.
So from my PoV, feel free to drop WiMAX support.

Probably worth pointing out, here in Australia there's been a move to
get better Internet coverage in rural areas using fixed-wireless broadband.

There's talk of that being based on "WiMAX 2", so there could be more
demand for WiMAX support in Linux in the future.
