While I wait for widespread availability of 802.11ac enterprise grade access points, a friend gave me a Cisco 1231 (dual radio) model as an interim solution. These puppies are a bit long in the tooth (A/B/G, no N, no WPA2 afaict) but it was still an acceptable solution since the overriding requirements were: be-a-bridge-not-a-router, POE, no controller needed, and multi-SSID-to-VLAN mapping. Here’s the config I’m using to accomplish that.
