It's not clear for me if we can technically build a coordinator-less network and use the touchlink method avalaible in the last zibee 3.0 stack.
The goal is to be able to form a network with multiple remotes and actuators whitout the need of a coordinator (Philips or some other light manufacturers do it with HUE and the ZLL profile from the previous Zigbee stack)
I don't find any exemples or documentation about it in the last Zigbee stack.
Thanks four your answers.

ZLL Touchlinking is still available, you will just need to make sure you include it as a cluster in your device. If you take a look at the Z3Light and Z3Switch demo applications included with our latest stacks, you will see they will perform touchlinking. In fact, you can form a network with almost all forms of zigbee security with these two applications and if you add the Z3Gateway (a host/NCP application), you will be able to do them all.
Read the description box on the General tab, it will explain how to use all of the applications:
2. The light, acting as a router, can form a distributed network, and the switch, acting as an end device, can join the distributed network.
3. The light, acting as a touchlink target, can touchlink with the switch, acting as a touchlink initiator.
