Broadcast BSSID

Is it possible to send a 802.11 data packet to the broadcast
address and the broadcast BSSID?   So just like a 802.11 probe
request just not a management frame.  

I know this is a violation of the spec, just wondering if the
hardware prevented it.  

I had been attempting to using PF_PACKET and SOCK_RAW to send
and receive the packets.   That should work, correct?
