Is there any way to edit a visual studio 2003 project with VS 2005 or 2008 (without upgrading)?

I am working with a team that is using Visual Studio 2003 and that is what their project is saved in.  Every time i open their solution in VS 2005 or 2008 my only option is to upgrade the project (which would make it unreadable for them).  Is there any way for me to edit the project with more recent versions of visual studio while not making the project unusable for them with their older versions of vs?

No. Once a VS2003 project has been opened in a newer IDE, everything (all references) have been updated.
