Irrevocable Choices in Channel Properties?

When creating/modifying a channel in the web control panel, are there any properties that are irreversible, once selected?
Meaning once i make a choice, i will be prevented changing that for the current or future version of the channel?

For example, if i don't select "Additional Fees May Apply" at first, can i turn it on for the next version (and vice versa)?
Ditto for others like "required features", "channel name" etc.

I know the channel version and minimum firmware values are only allowed to be increased. I know it'll be a moot point soon, but currently there's no way to add 3.1 support to an existing channel (that was previously limited to current gen devices) without Roku intervention.

Re: Irrevocable Choices in Channel Properties?

I have a few channels that I changed the name after they were created (before they were submitted for publication).

the new name shows up in some places, but the old, original name still shows up in others. it can get kind of confusing.

Weird that. My guess is it must be due to having >1 sources where channel title can be taken from, + Murphy's Law (see how this happens with channel version#). Specifically, manifest "title" attribute vs web control panel Descriptions / "Channel Name". I think former shows in ECP /query/apps and latter under "Streaming Channels"*, can you check?

(*) What a silly name they rolled out this year! esp. if one is writing non-video apps. Yes, i mean the "former" Channel Store Smiley Happy
