I imagined that would be part of it, but possibly not after reading:

That suggests that the client authenticates to other access points in 
the area, and caches the PMK information thus generating multiple 
authentication sessions; instead of resuming the same session (which is 
what I had assumed) using fast session resumption.

It's damn hard to find any solid technical information, it looks like 
you have to have "Adopter Membership" ($5000 per anum) with the wifi 
alliance before you can access anything resembling  an RFC.
