Are sponsorship changes retroactive?

I almost expect that nobody knows this for sure, but thought I'd check anyway. Last year, I applied for and got Victorian state sponsorship and lodged my visa application. I now have a CO but no visa yet.

Now, my concern is that earlier this year the state of Victoria updated their lists and my category is no longer in the sponsorship list. Can they retroactively change the sponsorship decision? I assume no because they've already sent the sponsorship letter to DIAC last year, but could they start retracting those decisions, appealing to changed lists?

I would doubt that it'll be retracted for all governments usually work on applications being processed re what conditions were at date of application being received.

But to be 1005 and avoid an unwelcome surprise I'm sure your CO would advise.
