"Transplanted" characters

(x-posted to gmworkshop

What do people think about "transplanting" characters? By this I mean, playing a character in a game after s/he has been played in another game.

I've heard various takes on this, from "It's a bad idea," to "It's OK, go ahead and do it."

In my own games, I am willing to allow it, provided the PC is a beginning character (i.e., no XP expenditures have been made) suitable for the level of my campaign. If the character is experienced, I require the player to re-make him or her as a beginning character.

Any other ideas?
