It is not recommended because the standards specify a time window for receive before transmitting to avoid collisons, this time window is fixed in the standards. Just like standard Ethernet.
As radio waves travel close to the speed of light it takes a finite time for a radio wave to travel a set distance. The time window in the standards works out to be about 1 mile at the speed of light. You can get these radios to transmit further than 1 mile via the use of high gain antenna etc but the standards limit the "real" range to 1 mile.
A client can end up with lots of late collisions affecting throughput.
There is no standard for the bridge function and as such you can tune this time window via the bridge spacing command in a BR350 but not and AP.
Cisco Clients can handle this change in receive window when talking to a Cisco device but you are still using the device outside of its optimum design.
