WDS frames are ACKed so it will not be completely dedicated for RX/TX.. One would need to either use broadcast RA or pseudo-adhoc mode with non-standard header format to avoid this, but it could probably be done. Of course the bridge/bonding code would need to enforce that policy on RX/TX dedication since the card driver would not really even know about the other interface.
