Yes they can.  I have done this for TenDRA a lot.

The most important thing you might want to remember is, are you
interested in keeping a history copy at the location you are moving
from/  (E.g. Atticize it.)

If not, you can just mv the stuff.  People need to make sure they
checkout with -P though.  cvsup deals easily with this.  I've done a lot
of CVS repomeistering for TenDRA.
