My take on this: long ago I tried to set up a WiaB server, and I wanted it
to support federation. The aftermath of the few hours I dedicated to WiaB
was a working wave server, but no federation. The main reason, in my case,
was the lack of step-by-step documentation regarding federation, since I'm
not familiar with all the stuff relative to certificates and wasn't able to
figure it out quickly. I have no idea how many other people have tried to
set up a wave server with federation, or what their reasons for failing
are, but there's my two cents :-)

By the way, I recently purchased a static IP address for my shitty
shared-hosting server, so I could give it a try again and try to set up
WiaB there, but I'm limited in the amount of time I can dedicate to it, so
I cannot give any promises regarding federation support... Also I'm not
sure what other wave servers out there support federation?
