Infra and Ad-hoc simultaneously?

the 802.11 standard forbids that a station is associated to more than one
access point. However, it does not explicitly forbid a station to be
associated with one access point and take part in a different Ad-hoc network
simultaneously (since in Ad-hoc, stations do not associate). Of course this
would only be possible when both networks use the same channel, which would
cut the available bandwidth by half. But, would it in theory be possible to
have two "virtual" interfaces, one being in Managed mode in a infrastructure
network, and the other in an Ad-hoc network?
This could be something like having a "wifi0" entry for the physical WLAN
interface and a "wlan0" and "wlan1" representing the two logical connections.
Is this possible?
