Unicast at the link layer, sure, but the AP should not be inserting its own
MAC address into the packet -- it should unicast-forward the packet but
leave the original sender's MAC address alone.

Mine _appears_ to do this, if tcpdump can be trusted.  But it's a moderately
expensive Cisco enterprise AP.  Do others not?
