It seems the MT is tilting towards mini pci-e on newest models, but is there a need for that kind of thing?

A quick search of WikiPedia says that a mini-PCI is 32bit @ 33MHz with a maximum bitrate of 1.067Gbps. Not exactly enough to deal with 3x3 MIMO 802.11ac for example, but maybe enough for an 802.11n link?

Even mini-PCIe with its one lane "should" do 5Gbps (PCIe rev 2). I suspect a proportionally meatier CPU would be required to service the interrupts, etc. though.

PCIe got more "channels" so you can run more than 1G on a mini PCIe system. Intel's H61 chip set offer:

PCI Express* 2.0 Interface Offers up to 5 Gb/s for fast access to peripheral devices and networking with up to eight PCI Express 2.0 x1 ports, configurable as x2 and x4 depending on motherboard designs.
