Canon Pixma Pro9000 - use paper meant for pigment?

I'm trying to decide between the Pro9000 Mark II and the Pro9500 Mark II. I'm leaning toward the Pro9000 Mark II since it is cheaper than the 9500 and uses dye inks (I like the bold, rich colors on glossy that dye produces).

However, I have a lot of non-glossy paper (e.g. matte, satin, etc. of various brands) that is left over from having an HP9180 pigment printer - can I use those papers (optimized for pigment printers) on a dye printer?

I know that the reverse, that is, using glossy paper (works well on a dye printer) on a pigment printer does not work so well.
