Yes, don't put the WLAN in the bridge, just the admin address and use it 
for pinging and management. We have several hundred devices setup this 
way; a bridge with an IP address but with no interfaces. 
If you use OSPF, but the bridge in the OSPF interfaces and the admin 
subnet in the networks and OSPF will handle the routing.
