10-speed crank and 11 speed drive train

Will a 10-speed campy crank work with the campy 11 speed drive train?

So a 11 speed chain won't be too narrow for the chainring teeth?

Many people have reported success with using 10 speed cranks with the 11 speed chain. I've done it with a Campy 10 crank. FWIW, the teeth of the 11 speed rings are only .1mm or .004 inch thinner. That's about the thickness of a sheet of paper.
