Yes. Otherwise the audit trail would be pointless. 

The point in having the limbo is to allow the author of a record some time to 
finalize his thoughts and to edit his narrative without subjecting him to the 
perils of a volatile platform, user interface or connection. But, once a 
record exists outside of the limbo, the author should make his mind up 
*before* he starts changing records. After all, health records are not 
something that is changed on a regular basis, isn't it?
