OT: SCA Drives in StorageWorks SSB's

This is a bit modern for the list, but I'm hoping someone here has some experience. I've just been given a pair of BA356 enclosures, and the one has 6 empty DS-RZ1CB-VW SSB's. The shelf itself is a BA356-KD with BA35X-MD 2X fans, and a BA35X-MH 16-bit I/O Personality Module.

My question is, while the DS-RZ1CB-VW SSB's are intended for 4.3GB 7200RPM *SCA* drives, can they handle 9 or 18GB 10,000RPM SCA drives?

If nothing else, I can always fill the shelf with RZ29-VW drives, but would prefer some 18GB drives if possible (I suppose I can always get some 7200RPM ones off of eBay).
