If one modifies a package, say reduces # of addon domains, or increases amount of disk space will it:

a) Modify all customers who have that package

or

b) Only affect newly created accounts w/ that package?

I'm hoping the answer is b :)

No. It will modify all customers who have that package assigned.

If you're needing separate (package-defined) limitations for different accounts it may be a good idea to create a separate set of packages that include the possible upgrades. Having a package to revert back to may prove beneficial in the future, especially to help track which account was supposed to have which adjustments (where they are defined in a package instead of only being manually customized).

Agreed. What I do is give the new package a similar name to the old one just to keep from going nuts with many different package names.
Old plan name example: Basic
New plan name: Basic Plan1

This keeps them sorted on my Edit Packages screen.
