In theory, yes. In practice, no. Just for fun, remove your
/usr/sbin/sendmail while having Postfix's /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
installed. It simply won't work. If I remember correctly, you won't even
receive the periodic(8) emails.
Nowadays it's probably better, but I remember in the old days GNOME
would always print through /usr/bin/lpr, even when CUPS is installed.
