can you turn a 6500 sup1a-pfc into a sup1a-2ge

The sup1a-pfc is just a sup1a-2ge with a pfc daughter board factory
installed (I believe). Is it possible to remove the PFC daughter board to
turn the sup1a-pfc back into a sup1a-2ge?

Has anyone done this?

Are there any risks?

The data sheets say that the sup1a-2ge is NOT field upgradable so I'm
concerned there may be some reason this can't be done (ie if you can't field
install maybe you can't field un-install).

The reason I want to do this is to have redundant sup1a-2ge's and I already
have the sup1a-pfc so it would be cheaper to remove the PFC. Alternatively,
can the sup1a-pfc be a redundant supervisor for the sup1a-2ge with the PFC
still installed?

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks, Darren
