QLogic SanBox 9100 question

I've got a Sanbox 9100 with (5) SB9004 - 4/2/1G blades in it and have run out of ports. I'm having a hard time sourcing out 4/2/1G blades but can come up with 8/4/2G SB9008 blades pretty easily. Anyone know if its kosher to pop those newer blades in to the 9100? I'm assuming it will work fine and that any ports I connect that have 8G at both ends will utilize it and it downscales otherwise???

Datasheet would imply so.
