Change edit approval/rejection

I've developed a script which allows you to view the status of your edit suggestion at a glance. (Accepted / Rejected or not yet processed.)

Since it generates quite a lot of traffic to StackOverflow because it checks the status of each edit suggestion at page (re)load, I intend to cache the status of the edit suggestion.

However, since I am not eligible to approve edits yet, I don't know if the approval / rejection of an edit can be undone. Are edit approvals / rejects permanent?

TL;DR: Can the status of an edit change after it's been approved / rejected?

Note: Although I have searched for a couple of minutes, I haven't found any similar question. However, because this question may have been asked in a different form it might be possible somebody did already ask this. If so, can you please share a link to the relevant answer?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The larger issue is that you should be using the API to get the information you need, since the site will likely frown on that less. Unfortunately to do so you'd have to jump through a few hoops, since the ID reflected in the URL isn't the actual ID of the suggested edit anymore. – Tim Stone Oct 5 '12 at 11:38

It's safe to cache status.

Rolling the post back, you can undo the changes of a suggested edit. However, this does not affect the status of the suggested edit itself.

Approvals and rejections are permanent and cannot be undone.
