Clarification on Side-Loaded App Support

Hey -

With respect to the recent announcement about the IDK and beta channels (here) could someone clarify this point? The description of the IDK could be interpreted to mean that side-loaded channels won't work any longer unless they are side-loaded with the new IDK. Simple question:

Will the side-loaded app I have written for my own use alone (no distribution of any kind) continue to work as it does today even if I don't do anything with the new IDK?

Re: Clarification on Side-Loaded App Support

I don't know how anyone could do any development without being able to side-load, so I would be willing to bet your side-loaded channel will still work, but then again we're talking about Roku, so who knows.
