The lack of browser I am not sure... This falls a bit out of the bound of your
typical captive portal. I might need help to see a scenario where the gateway
can do /anything/.

For the walled garden, can you flesh out the ideal use case for me? There is
already some support for that in terms of the different user classes and the
configurable firewall rules. The protocol is already able to handle that case
although admittedly this might not be properly configurable. With a better
use case I'd be able to better see what gateway side improvement might be
