nova boot from snapshot can be any flavor?

In the current End user guide, it shows how to create a snapshot from instance A, and then how to boot a second instance B from that snapshot. My question is: what restrictions apply, if any, on the arguments for the boot command.

For example, does it have to be passed the same flavor as A? What about any swap or root disk sizes?

I think that for RAM and vCPU you can choose any flavor; of course if your snapshot is 5GB you could not spawn a VM with that snapshot and a 2GB hard disk flavor.
