No, but you won't be able to transfer them to airlines and hotel programs anymore.

Im pretty sure you can only downgrade to the sapphire from the SP. As long as you know someone with the SP you can always transfer your points to them to transfer for you to hotel/airlines.

So I could transfer my UR to a family member without incurring penalties?

Do I have to call to do so ?

In practice, anyone (though the T&C say differently).
