Is it ok to put capacitors on the AD5686R reference output?

The AD5686R has a very nice internal reference that I want to use as a reference throughout my board. This includes a SAR ADC which recommends a 1µF ceramic on its Ref input, to absorb the fast transients created during conversion. However, I don't know from the datasheet whether it's OK to have a large capacitive load on the Ref output of the AD5686R.

 

Is there some implicit assumption that a reference output can be used this way, or should I be concerned about the reference buffer becoming unstable?
