As long as it is bridging to the same layer 2 subnet it should work.  It is typically only used for migrations and not long term.  There is one undocumented issue where clients running Cisco CCX entensions will prefer connecting to Cisco APs that broadcast the QBSS Load IE:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_64x_WebHelp/Web_Help_Index.htm#ArubaFrameStyles/1CommandList/wlan_ssid_profile.htm?Highlight=qbss-load-enable  You can broadcast this only on the controller-based platform but it is not available for IAPs.  

 

As long as you are bridging client traffic on both Cisco and Aruba APs to the same layer 2 VLAN roaming should work to and from each infrastructure, but it is not a good idea to run it long term, because troubleshooting will be difficult.
