I mean really, why
wouldn't the life safety system in a car dynamically acquire its

of it since there were only 3 cars.

several cars on the road today have cellular radios on more than one network ( the nissan leaf for example)

When you account for integration into the driver and passengers personal area networks (pans) as for example ford sync 
does today, and integration into home automation networks, (garage doors, lighting, media syncronization) and in the 
case of electric cars, the smart grid) why wouldn't a car, acquire addresses and be discoverable on the users home 
network? By the time this is fully realized, the car will be on quite a few networks, instead of just the two or three 
it's presently either supporting or attached to...
