When the split occurs, will reputation be shared between meta and main Stack Overflow similar to the other meta implementations?

Specifically, if someone gains reputation on the future Stack Overflow meta, will that reputation change also be reflected in Stack Overflow main?

Or, will the reputation for Stack Overflow main and meta remain separate in the same fashion as its current state (albeit perhaps modified by the migration for the meta rep)?
