What?  Of course area1 - area1 will work.  Intra-area communication
will work fine if the connection to the backbone is severed.  If your
network uses only area 1, I'm pretty sure it will work fine, until you
want to add an additional area.

And yes, I tried it in the lab.  4 routers in a star, no area 0
anywhere in the network, and all routers can communicate.
