Can SQL enterprise be downgraded to SQL Standard while CRM 4.0 remains installed?

Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I currently have SQL 2005 enterprise evaluation edition installed with Microsoft CRM installed on top of it. Is there a way to keep CRM installed and uninstall SQL enterprise evaluation so that I can install a licensed SQL 2005 standard version so that it still works with the current CRM installation?
