I had never thought of that, but I see your point.  Thoughts arising:

1) If it doesn't work brconfig should fail.

2) I wonder if another encapsulation would enable this to work.  My
802.11 spec memory is very fuzzy at this point, but I recall a way to
carry 802.3 frames in 802.11, rather than the encapsulation that puts
only the data and puts the 802.3 addresses in the 802.11 header.
