    The radio subsystem can be implemented as an ECU?

    No, I do not think so. Radio systems must have a user interface and technology upgrades much faster than ECUs. My perspective is that radio systems are more of a screen digital interface to be controlled and operated as a smartphone extended interface than a stand alone system.
