It came to my attention that ifname on wireless interfaces should not be used in /etc/config/network, especially when /etc/config/wireless already has option network contained in it. I've removed the offending lines in my profiles and a quick check appears that everything still functions proper. I was told that keeping it the way it was could lead to problems. It was mentioned by an openwrt developer and I didn't get a full answer as to what kinds of problems it would cause.

Would just like to confirm that nothing else will be effected in the robin code with this removed. The setup in /etc/config/wireless and use of option network seems to work everything out and all is well.

It's been like that forever and working, so I guess it's ok. Same thing with the "option agmode", but my understanding it that neither are the correct way to have the config file. Especially "option agmode", that's not even a valid option in kamikaze, should be "option hwmode", but it doesn't really matter since it's not doing anything, unless the intent was to really only have it 11g.
