Dont want to stray too far off here, but if that were "asking for trouble"
I'd have been out of business many years ago.  The sync is fine, one clock
becomes master.

I have been recording and playing back on separate devices for a long
time... As long as various softwares/platforms have supported it, but I am
talking back in the days of cramming 3 or 4 soundblasters into PCI slots.

I record generally 16 to 32 tracks, mostly overdubs.  This year I did a 90
minute film score in two single Ardour sessions with literally thousands of
takes and +/- 1 frame accuracy

In other words, it is a non-issue.
