Is Flex-10 NIC compatible with standard GbE2c inteconnect?

We are planning to buy new blade servers - BL460cG6. Our Blade c7000 encosure is equipped with GbE2c Gigabit interconnect switches. Question - can the new G6 server with the 10Gbit Flex-10 NICs be used in this 1Gbit configuration?

And when you upgrade the GbE2c's to VC Flex-10 Modules :) the LOMs on the pre-G6 blades will work it it as well.
