The "command & control" - problem is outsourced to an external device of arbitrary size and complexity instead of trying to "cram" all this complexity into a tiny bot.

Potentially, they could be radio controlled.

Robert Freitas has done a huge amount of work analyzing medical micromachines. He's authored two technical books on the subject, so far. You don't have to buy them in dead-tree-version, by the way, they're free on his website.
