Nevermind. I read at <http://wireless-starter-kit.com/80211g_update.html>
that the bridging is in the master/slave model:

    Although the AirPort Extreme Base Station bridging works with up to
    four units at once, you cannot daisy chain the AirPort Extreme Base
    Stations in bridging mode; all the bridged units must each connect
    back to the master unit. In more extensive installations, you could
    run Ethernet among several master AirPort Extreme Base Stations and
    still use bridging on the edges of the network.
