Is 802.11a history?

While browsing for a replacement work laptop, I've noticed that  802.11a is absent in all of the laptops I've been looking at except one.  I saw "a" on an Intel Wireless NIC but I saw Realtek, Altheros and Broadcom has 802.11b/g/ and n only.  I believe even some Apple MAcs don't have "a".

Is it because the Wireless NIC manufacturers are unwilling to get into a legal stouch with Australia's CSIRO?

Does anyone have any opinions?

Really? We have 'a' in all the laptops here in the US... Sounds like a 'down under' thing... you want me to send you an 'a' express card?
