That turns out not to be true. I emailed some combo KF7/KF8 files made by KindleGen, and PDS turned them into standalone KF8s for transfer to the Kindle Paperwhite.

I note that the file size listed on Amazon site indicates that it stored a combo file in the cloud. I haven't tested downloading to an older device without KF8, but presumably it gets stripped to KF7.
