Planning changes to Authorizations for migration to V7

Hello Experts,

I researched the new authorization concept but I have 2 basic questions:

1) Do Bex reports need to have authorization variables defined on Authorization Relevant Infoobjects to force a selection within the set of authorized rows. From the PPTs I downloaded from SDN, it seems that this is no longer necessary and that the security engine will prevent the display of non authorized rows?

2) We intend to ugrade to v7 but continue to deploy V3.5 Infocubes under V7. Assuming we do not change the default and work with the new authorization concept, will the old, non upgraded infocubes be subject to the old concept authorization objects or will the new authorization concept apply to these cubes?
