[Server-devel] [XSCE] NUC with internal WiFi AP?

I'm not very positive towards using a router as a school server due memory constraints, but rpi2 with a small wifi dongle or other such seems doable to me.  Between George, Jerry, and Anish this is pretty well there in the current  xsce master.

Will NUC-like "handheld-size" servers with internal WiFi AP's ever be possible?  (towards shrinking the spaghetti-peripherals-hassles that so many educators are reacting to, eager for XSCE/IIAB/ETC but persistently interested in a smaller all-around enclosure)
Following bit suggests the answer might be "no", but then again others understand this far better than i !?
"Q: Using Linux / hostapd, will this work as an access point?
A: Yeah... ish. I have it in my router right now and it works great in the 2.4ghz band. Im working on getting the 5ghz band up and running but I seem to be running into country code problems or it might be possible that this card doesn't support AP mode in 5Ghz mode but Im hoping for the former :) kernel 3.13.

EDIT. Talked to a intel kernel dev. 5ghz is disabled for regulatory reasons.
