Can I safely downgrade from 5.7 to 5.6 with MySQL Governor without braking my existing dbs? As you know, this is not anymore possible with the WHM MySQL Upgrade tool.

In any case, please make full database backup before changing MySQL version. Additional information about how to change MySQL version can be found here:
