my father just successfully switched after having the card for a month or two. It actually was switched to the wmc preferred without asking specifically for that. you just have to try again(try exploiting the israel rental coverage)

sorry for bad expression. I should ask can I keep the points when I convert to MC or I should redeem before?

Would downgrading my SP to a regular Sapphire allow me to then apply for SP and get the bonus again?

When I signed up originally for my Sapphire Preferred, I had a plain sapphire, and they just closed that one and moved the credit line to the SP and approved my app.

Will they let you downgrade from SP to normal saph still?

My friend just got the SP without them closing his regular Sapphire, so YMMV I guess.

you wont lose your points. however if you dont convert to preferred then you lose transfer options(to airlines and the like) although you can still transfer to another person that has preferred.
