Yes of course. 

That is the point of the patches we prepared for CRAN: allow things to work
with current CRAN Rcpp 0.10.6, _and_ allow transition to new (to be released)
one 0.11.0.

We are not trying to intentionally break one or the other, or force things.

But without the suggested changes, Rcpp 0.11.0 will NOT get onto CRAN as it
will break a few packages.

Hope this clarifies.
