You can try.

Signal levels in rfmon are largely bunk. Some cards seem at least consistent, if not actually accurate (atheros, for one). If you have some algorithm which can figure out location to some acceptable level already, then you can apply it to clients, sure. Getting that algo is the hard part, would generally imply a collection of fixed sensors and a lot of tuning for whatever card you use.
