The way I understand this, the TXOP limit is meant to limit the duration
of a single transmission on the channel. An aggregate is transmitted in
one go, there's no SIFS or extra PHY headers inbetween, just short
delimiters. So an A-MPDU should be treated pretty much like an MPDU
here, its transmission duration should not exceed the TXOP limit.
