Let say I develop a workflow for a given custom list and I template that custom list--no really funny custom fields (Standard SharePoint Columns).
Will the exported version of that workflow run on a different installation? Let's say not even the same company environment.
Or are there some things that are installation or license specific. I do realize if you use features from a more advanced version, they will not work. Just for the sake of argument, let's say the versions are close and no advanced features are used.
Would the workflow be expected to work? This is just for my knowledge of portability.

absolutely! The exported workflows are not directly tied into the environment they where created in. If you export the workflow, create a new list in another environment you can import the workflow successfully. You just have to make sure, that you use the same names for the columns and lists you are referencing. If you do this, the workflow should publish successfully. Otherwise you would have to modify the workflow prior to publishing - actually the workflow will not publish, as the validation will fail if columns or lists are not existent.
