Preview for Developers and MaaS360 MDM solution

I am interested in installing WP8.1 on my new 1520, but I'm concerned that if I do, I may lose access to my firm's email and calendar, which is managed with MaaS360. The actual settings are all EAS, of course. Anyone have any idea if the update will uninstall any corporate apps like MaaS360 and if so, will it prevent the app from being reinstalled? I ask because the last time I tried Developer Preview from GDR2 to GDR3, the MaaS360 software didn't recognize the OS and wouldn't let me onto my firm's system. However, I don't know if there were other changes made between GDR2 and GDR3 that affected this, BUT I will also add that MaaS360 wasn't already installed on the phone that went from GDR2 to 3 with Developer Preview, whereas it IS installed and working on my Lumia 1520.

Argh, it's a big risk, but a big reward. If it kills my connection to my office, it will really suck for the next few months while we wait for the official release.

What do you think?
