cams and rockers

After reading the thread on replacing/matching cams and rocker arms, I have a question about using old cams (in good condition) with new or reconditioned rocker arms. From what was discussed and what is said in Wayne's book, it's clear that you should use new parts with new parts and old parts with old parts (old rockers on same old cam lobe). But what if you have a couple bad (pitted) rocker arms and you want to replace them - or what if you have all the rocker arms reconditioned? Can you use the old cams? It appeared that this might be okay with a 20 minute engine break-in run at 2000 rpm to "mate the surfaces." Right? Wrong?
