That is a possibility if you get upgraded at the window or at the gate. (It has only happened to me on board and I say I don't want to move up.) You can always call and get it back quickly enough if the former, or ask the gate agent to take you off the list in the case of the latter especially if you and your companion are far apart on the list and it looks like only one will clear.

My suggestion if you are traveling with someone is put the non-elite person in the aisle or whatever the more desirable coach seat is, so yours will be less likely to filled if you get upgraded and want to downgrade.
