Building a repeater for 802.1x AP

Is it even remotely possible to use a combination of hostapd +
wpa_supplicant to build a repeater for an AP with 802.1x authentication?
This repeater would act as a kind of proxy for 802.1x / EAP messages,
forwarding them back and forth between the "real" STA and AP in order to
gain access.
Then it could act as a bridge or even as an IP router, providing NAT if
My main use case would apply to an EAP-SIM context.
