Access-list is working only between MikroTik Routers.
But you can use regular queues to apply bandwidth shaping,

So if you wanted to shape the bandwidth between the clients on a wifi network connected to a particular ap, they you would bind the cleints mac address to an ip address and then use the http://www.mikrotik.com/testdocs/ros/3.0/qos/queue.php to in order to shape the bandwidth between the clients, now if the clients talk to each other without useing the gateway of the routeros, then the clients would need thier own shaping done on the client side, which can be done easily on every wifi client that is running routeros , but true laptop accounts that just use the wifi card in the laptop would be unaffected

Hello,

Sorry for misunderstanding. IT is not possible to limit traffic between
wireless clients with mangle and queues, because Router is not seeing traffic
between clients.
Only solution to limit this kind of traffic is to set default-ap-tx-limit in
wireless interface settings or set ap-tx-limit to wireless access list
entries.
Note that client-tx-limit will work only if wireless client is mikrotik device
too.

Regards,
Maris
Сan through routing possible?
