Could you carbonate heavy or super-heavy (tritiated) water?

Suppose you had a bunch of mostly-pure heavy water (deuterium) or super-heavy water (tritium). Would you be able to carbonate these? It seems like heavy water, at least, has similar properties to "normal" water, but I'm not sure if the differences would affect carbonation.
