As long as you have Discovery methods in place, like DHCP option 43 or DNS, you should be good to go.
I use DNS and have a DNS record that points cisco-capwap-controller or cisco-lwapp-controller, depending on what version of code you are running, to my controller. So, when I get an out of the box Lightweight AP, I plug it in, it gets DHCP info and does a dns resolve to the controller and joins the controller. I have added dozens and dozens of APs in the past couple of months.
