Is it possible to use an adoptable SD card on another ROM, by copying the encryption key located at /data/misc/vold/*.key?

According to the Android documentation :

.. Keys are associated with adopted devices based on the adopted partition GUID.
Because the contents of an adopted storage device are strongly tied to the Android device that adopted it, the encryption keys should not be extractable from the parent device, and therefore the storage device can't be mounted elsewhere.

Apart from some errors that may be caused by the different ROM, is it possible to access the SD card across ROMs? Or is adoptable storage only accessible on the ROM it was created with?
