ATM ELAN internal topology

I am designing a solution for a customer that has a single server farm and all but 3 of the LANs that are supported by this server farm. My customer would like to move those 3 lans that reside on another ELAN to the home ELAN since they occupy a common infrastructure with other entitites. My concern is that those 3 LANs must maintian the capability to move to another location and connect back via remote VPN connectivity. My concern is that if I establist the IP addresses for all the users on the Home ELAN and then move 1 or all 3 of theses LANS how will that effect the ELAN and moreso my routing of these IP addresses when they come in through the remote VPN.

I prefer not connecting these 3 LANS on that ELAN but using ethernet and connect them in as another segment each independent and separate so that it does not effect the ELANS or the routing.

There are several helpful links on implementing and configuring LANE in different scenarios.
