802.11n vs. 802.11z?

Saw a good article on 802.11n on CNet that explains how 802.11n will help improve wireless bandwidth. As you know, Wi-Fi has a limited range and is susceptible to interference from cordless phones, microwaves, and other wireless devices and is much slower than Ethernet. 802.11n aims to change all that. Go check out the CNet article to learn more. Personally, after 802.11b, then 802.11a (why did they go backwards alphabetically), then 802.11g and now 802.11n, I'm going to hold off and wait for 802.11z, which is the last letter in the alphabet and promises to have speeds of up to 2.4 terabytes/second over a wireless spectrum. Ok, I made that up. I wonder what they will do when they run out of letters for wireless networking standards? Can 802.11aa or 802.11aaa be far behind?
