I think unmanaged switches will pass vlan trunk traffic and one vlan can be 
untagged/native.   So if the server and one of the routers can add a tagged vlan 
interface they should be able to have what appears as a private connection on a 
different subnet.  But probably not much better than just overlaying subnets 
unless you want to do something like nat based on postrouting to an interface.
