Regular host and access point at once?

If wds was only good between other wds mode cards... it wouldnt be much 
of a 'distribution' system would it :-p   WDS is intended for a self 
contained transport system between APs without the use of other cards.  
Personally, I would always look at that option first.  Using a seperate 
card for the backhaul means you can have the APs on different channels, 
and not 'share' bandwidth.  Just my opinion, there are probably more 
advantages to consider either way.
