Is a "proof by implementation" is better?

I don´t think so. Implementations are known to be buggy. Implementations 
are known to not behave as expected.

However, this could lead to a somewhat useless debate on the topic: 
"What is a proof?"

In my opinion, the first step to be done is to exactly define the 
question. Then we can discuss how we can find the answer.
And the question "which simulator is the best one for wireless networks" 
is that extremely vague that I doubt that there is a sound answer to 
this one.
