As far as a hybrid ap/tank... I'm not sure about that. You don't have enough AP to be overly effective and you don't have enough HP/Armor to be as indestructible.
i was thinking about that hybrid thing (maybe costts lots of gold and takes too much time to give results)
as for the tanking part i would talk about the armor bonus that meditate gives you...
but to do so you have to stand still
using it when you're dying since it will recover almost all of your life could be really nice
