The problem is, a lot of that is OTG spec'd, and it will rapidly get
crappy when plugged into generic devices.

It MAY be doing proper host mode - and then you're fine. It may not be.
You'd have to plug stuff in and see what it does, or look into running
nonstandard kernels.

Yeah it's more like a 'real pc' which probably makes things a lot
simpler in general.

Kismet is pretty much device neutral now, if you can get a posix layer
and a packet feed it can either run, or be made to run. It shouldn't
have any fundamental issue running on the transformer, though I'll be
curious to hear how it goes.
