Question about MAC access in HostAP

I would like to know if it is possible to use HostAP in order to
implement a new MAC access protocol, such as, EDCF (for QoS). In more
detail, does HostAP code enable to add 4 access queues instead of one
and each queue having a different DIFS (or AIFS) ?
Is it possible to configure MAC parameters from HostAP code? if no, do
you know a firmware that enables to configure MAC parameters and
especially to handle multiple back-off algorithms each one associated
with a special access queue ?
In addition, are you interested (or who is interested?) to implement
EDCF (or EDCA), as well as HCF protocol for quality of service in WLANs
(i.e., IEEE 802.11e WLANs)?
