Use an MU Affilliate Link on a non WP site

Hi,

If a user blog signs up as an affiliate of my WPMU site, can they use the their MU Affiliate link (for example, http://blogs.mu/?ref=admin-63 ) on a non-wordpress or non-WPMU site? Will there WPMU blog still get credit and will it show up on the reports?

I would like my business associates that have their own websites (non-wp) to get paid for referrals. I'm hoping they can sign-up with a free blog, become an MU affiliate, then use the affilate image and link code on their own site.

Thanks,
Chuck S.
