I do not know, but here's an easy experiment: Copy the IEEEtran.layout
file into your local LyX layout directory (e.g., $HOME/.lyx/layouts/,
for me). Now rename it to whatever the name of the new class file is and
try importing one of their new LaTeX templates. If the changes are as
minor as you suggest, that should just work. Possibly a few small tweaks
will be needed, but someone who actually uses this layout will be best
placed to do that.
