1. In bug 882485 comment 7, Hanno suggested filtering out SSIDs ending with "_nomap" because that is Google's opt-out mechanism.

2. Bug 522309 filtered out blank (zero-length string) SSIDs. However, the blank SSID check was lost when bug 677256 added GLS v2 support. Was that intentional?

* FYI: This patch will bit rot or be bit rotted by bug 882485.
