Yes, it would be possible and Oleg Izhvanov has already sent a patch for
hostapd to work without Host AP driver. This patch uses wireless events
to get notification of new stations (this would be good to have, even
though 802.1x could be also used so that supplicant would be required to
start negotiation with EAPOL-Start).
