H-REAP and Non H_REAP AP's using the same SSID

I have an existing network with Non H-REAP AP's and I am installing a remote office using H-REAP APs. I am using some of the same SSIDs on both sites and have enabled the H-REAP setting on the WLANs.

The design guide I looked at had this note;

Note: Access points not configured to operate in H-REAP mode ignore the H-REAP Local Switching setting and all client traffic is tunneled back to the controller.

It works OK and traffic is locally switching at the remote sites and still tunneling on the main site.

But am I breaking any design or supported options rule.

Nope... that is exactly how it was meant to be deployed. Most H-REAP install I have done uses a single ssid with some ap's in local and others in h-reap.
