Hardware might be able to that, but it would be difficult to handle this from host driver without modifying firmware code. There can always be multiple TX frames buffered in the wlan card. Even if sending only one frame at a time (which would be horror to performance), AP sends beacons and replies to probe requests etc. Changing TX power would affect all this transmits and would not thus be limited to frames going to one station.
