Well, I believe the answer here is yes (I've actually attached a sample video demonstrating how changes in the XML are reflected in the PM). However, why would you want to preform downgrade on your project in first place? Please have in mind that downgrades are not officially supported, and they have not been tested, so we cannot guarantee any pre-determined behavior if you perform downgrade on your live project.
