Since TM backups are stored in a SparseBundle on the TC ( 1 sparsebundle per Mac ) they can be copied of the Time Capsule using normal techniques.

However .... Time Machine uses a database locally to each Mac, and on the TC, to keep track of backups....

Better think what will happen to your RTO ( Recovery Time Objecive ) if those DB are no longer ' in-sync '.

TM is nice for some quick, on-the-fly restore activities, but I would not trust TM as a part of a professional backup strategy.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
