I've been using tagged and untagged switch ports on the 3800 for a few years now 
(I use them for the Scale conference and we have a rather complex wired 
infrastructure), the only problem I ran into was the issue of the ports being 
numbered backwards on the outside of the box.

For the conference, I use one port on the switch as my WAN port (trunked) and 
then configure the other three ports to specific VLANs. I configure the 'wan' 
port to be trunked as well, but generally only end up using it to daisy-chain 
another AP off of.
