Yes.  There are corner cases one much be careful about : 

Those issues can largely be solved if wallets that receive coins from
another wallet refresh them before use, which afaik we plan to do.  In
that case, users who need extra security can avoid making (identifying)
purchases from the wallet that knows the reserve key and does


p.s. Refresh works to transfer money to yourself safely because
unmodified wallet does not implement the linking protocol, so the wallet
could not recover the coins refreshed by another wallet.  A modified
wallet could implement the linking protocol, so you cannot transfer
coins to buy things this way.
