I know that we can save to a 9.3 MXD document using ArcGIS 10.

Is it possible to export to a 9.3 MSD (optimized map document) using ArcGIS 10?

you mean to use with ags 9.3? – Brad Nesom Feb 3 '11 at 23:11
correct, we want to create a MSD that could be loaded into ArcGIS Server 9.3.1 with ArcGIS Desktop (ArcMap) 10. – mwalker Feb 7 '11 at 20:27

I'd say no. In ArcObjects, the IMSDHelper interface (used to open and save MSD files) has a SaveAs method, but there is no version parameter, and the MSDHelper class does not implement IDocumentVersion.
