I'm pretty sure I have done this.  Talking on skype on a mobile.  Moving from wifi to wireless data.  Cell phones switch from one cell to another seamlessly (in theory).  Large scale wifi networks do this as well.  Transferring from a home wifi to a wireless data connection shouldn't be a big deal, nor should transferring from wired to wireless.  Seamless handover is a technical problem not a justification for wireless last mile.
