Converting front skewer to rear

Can a Bontrager RXL front skewer be converted to a rear skewer, using the threaded rod from an previous generation RXL skewer?
If so, how can it be done?

Is it an open cam or closed cam type? Open cam types usually have a m5x.8 thread on both ends of the rod and it's just a matter of threading one out and another in.
