Remote compute nodes from controller/network

I'm new to Openstack and have been wondering whether an Openstack topology is possible where compute and controller nodes are separated by a layer-3 network? The point of the exercise would be to deploy Openstack compute nodes as (potentially light-weight) CPE with the controller/network node being centralised. Has anyone tried this and have any recipes they've got or advice that could be shared?

Compute nodes (and all other nodes) need to access the message queue, which is typically implemented on the controller. This is done with TCP, so apart from performance considerations it shouldn't really matter on what networks they are located.
