How to manage access gateways in BNA/CMCNE without a seed switch?

We have a lot of Dell and HP blade chassis with Brocade FC connectivity set as access gateways into Cisco MDS directors.  Is it possible to manage the access gateways in BNA/CMCNE without a Brocade director as a seed switch?

from BNA User Guide:

 

NOTE
Switches running in Access Gateway mode cannot be used as the seed switch.

 

you need a Switch - no matter if this is a Director or PizzaBox - as seed Switch in order to manage other Switches in the fabric set in AG Mode.
