RSX levers with 600 brakes: compatible or no?

Right now my specialized is equipped with RSX 100 7 speed brifters and rx100 brake calipers. Since I moved one of those brakes onto the fixie I built, I was looking for a set to replace them with. I came across some perfect condition 600 brake calipers (pre-dark anodized color) and was wondering whether there are any problems with using those together. I was reading up about SLR and found that some lever and caliper combinations added some extra stiffness.

The combination of RSX100 levels with 600 (6207?) brakes will work. The other way around (600 levers with RSX100 brakes) will not.
