Have any of you gurus ever successfully downgraded a managed package?

I'm aware that officially, you are not able to downgrade to earlier versions. And I appreciate many component types are one-way in nature, though there was a component deprecation pilot for a time.

That said, if you can uninstall all deployments from all orgs of a particular package version and Salesforce will revert it from Release to Beta status without too much trouble. I'm wondering if there is any anecdotal info to be had here.

Yes, sometimes, but it's non-trivial. You need to submit a case and work closely with partner support and your account team.
