Yes, they don't care where they are as long as they can send packets 
back and forth.

Why not ?
They'll startup in startup mode, then the assumption has to be that 
there's been a communications interruption so they'll go into recover 
mode. Once they've made contact and "chatted" a bit, they'll go into 
normal mode.
