I will refrain from making any smart-ass comments about Mikrotik and BGP,
but no: there is no reason whatever that you can't take your internet feeds
from different locations, so long as you have a good quality interior
network link between those two locations, and your two routers talk iBGP to
each other.  Just make sure your boxes have enough RAM to cope with a full
dfz feed.

I.e. it's just the same as using any other router in this regard.
