1) GPS. No, really. As long as you can't do mutual time-of-flight
   it's the way to go.

2) Address constraints from the neighbour node(s). Geodetic DHCP
   (assignment of address/position plus uncertainty mask). This
   way the mobile node doesn't have to have a positioning system
   onboard (but what's the big deal these days?).

It's a bit of handwaving, but I think it can be made to work.
