I would use ePMP. 450 is nice stuff, but I just can't see how I would justify the cost over ePMP for something like that.
It'll co-exist with an AF-5x link just fine, as long as there's enough frequency separation. Ideally, you just use the 5.15-5.25ghz range for one, and 5.8ghz for the other... of course that doesn't always work out if you have other noise to deal with.
