Actually it's always been a supported and logical option. We are rather used to relay agents being embedded in routers - mostly because the router is usually a convenient place to put it and should normally always be present.
However, there is nothing wrong with having a standalone relay agent ona remote network. It just needs the one interface through which it can communicate with local clients by broadcast, and communicate with a remote server by unicast.
