With Org-Wide Coexistence set to Teams Only, can individual users still be set to Islands?

We're transitioning from SfB online to Teams.  Our organization Coexistence is still set to Islands, but the Coexistence mode for most users have been changed at the individual level to Teams Only.  We'd like to set the Org-wide coexistence mode to Teams only, and then set a few users to Islands mode so they can keep using SfB.  Is that possible?  Our current setup works, but it means we need to manually set every new user to Teams Only and that's an easy detail to miss.

Thanks.

@Alex Carlock yes there should be no problem with that as long as Microsoft haven't notified you that they are upgrading your tenant for you, as then the Islands and Skype modes can no longer be set.

 

At the moment they are working through the smaller tenants, I believe where there are <500 users, but you will get notified and have an option to defer.

@Steven Collier, Great.  That's what I expected, so thanks for the confirmation.
