Can Dhcp client receive messages on a different port than 68?

RFC says that client should send to server port 67 and
server should send to client port 68. I would like to
know whether the client can receive on another
port?..And if the client can, will it be
inter-operable with the other servers out there? Does
the server always send to the default client port, or
on the port from which the client message came?

Thanks & Regards,
