Is it guaranteed that revoking the code signing key does not affect binaries already signed by RIM using the key?

Can anybody (preferably from RIM) comment on whether it is officially guaranteed that if I revoke my RIM code signing/authentication key (the one generated by the Signature Tool) then the applications RIM previously signed on my behalf will continue to run and install just fine on BlackBerrys?

we've already tried that and they still work fine. there is no "app revoking" mechanism on the BB as it is on the iPhone. you can mail devsupport with the question i guess, this being mainly a user-to-user board.

No, what they are saying is that if you signed (and submitted) and apps then pressed revoke keys, the already signed (and submitted) apps will still work.
